The Westwood Public Schools is offering voluntary student COVID-19 Pooled Testing

As Westwood Public Schools transitioned students to in-person learning, protocols such as face coverings, hand washing, social distancing, and additional cleaning measures were put in place to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission among students, teachers, and staff in school buildings. Student COVID-19 PCR pooled testing is an additional layer to ensure that our students and staff are safe in our schools as best we possibly can be.

 

Student testing will maximize the longevity of in-person learning by quickly detecting, tracing, and isolating COVID-19-positive individuals whether or not they become symptomatic. And, it will provide families and staff with peace of mind. The current safety measures in place combined with testing for staff and students will lower the risk of transmission and allow more consistent access to in-person instruction for our students.

 

 

Take 2 minutes to register for our WPS COVID-19 testing to keep your schools and community healthy.
