DSA Student COVID Testing Opportunities

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:
