Thompson School District COVID-19 Testing for Staff and Students
How do I get tested for COVID-19?
In partnership with the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment (LCDHE), TSD staff and students ages five (5) and older will be able to access free COVID-19 testing through the district. Staff and students will register through LCDHE’s COVID-19 testing portal. Registration will open at least two days prior to the testing event. TSD staff and students will use a link provided and a pin specific to the TSD testing events.

What should I expect when I arrive at the TSD testing center?
Expect to be greeted and asked for your TSD badge/ photo ID. If you do not have a TSD badge, staff will verify your eligibility in our student/staff record system.
You must wear your mask/face covering.
You must sign a liability waiver. If the individual is under 18 years of age, their parent/guardian must be present to sign the waiver.
You will be given a label that aids with reporting results.
Note: Parents/Guardians must be able to safely control their minor child or we may be unable to perform the test due to safety concerns.
