Hello DSA Family,
Durham Public Schools, in partnership with MAKO Medical, will begin providing weekly COVID-19 testing to help identify possible COVID-19 infections among students even if they are not showing any symptoms. Research has shown such testing can reduce the spread by 50%, especially in large settings such as schools.
The testing is a simple swab of the nose and not the test that tickles the brain. DSA will begin offering this free service in approximately two weeks.
This is a voluntary testing process, so a parent or guardian must register their student to participate. Please register your student today with this link:
Durham Public Schools has also provided a COVID-19 Testing FAQs.
