COVID-19 TESTING
  • Comprehensive COVID-19 Testing Strategy

     

    In an effort to mitigate COVID-19 in our schools and community, Atlanta Public Schools (APS) has adopted a Comprehensive COVID-19 Testing Strategy in collaboration with public health officials, community partners, universities, and healthcare organizations.

     

    This strategy works with our school-based APS Care Centers and community resources to provide testing for the following groups:

    • All APS Staff will now participate in mandatory, twice-weekly testing
    • Students with symptoms identified through the health screening protocols
    • Students who have had contact with someone with COVID-19 in the school or workplace
    • Students with possible exposure in the context of outbreak settings
    • PLUS surveillance testing for individuals who are asymptomatic.
