    Durham Public Schools, in partnership with MAKO Medical, will begin offering building surveillance testing for asymptomatic COVID-19 cases, as well as diagnostic testing for symptomatic individuals, at all DPS schools and district buildings beginning in October.

    Students and individuals over 18 years old can sign their own consent form, while children younger than 18 years old will need parental consent to participate.
