COVID-19 Pooled Testing
What is Pooled Testing?
Pooled testing provides a weekly look at a “pool” of students and staff. A self-administered nose swab is pooled with other members of the pool. There will be 10-20 members per pool. A PCR test of the pool will reveal whether COVID-19 is present. If positive, further testing (rapid BINAX) will be performed on all members. Close contacts who opt out of the pool will need to quarantine without exception.
