Testing in Schools

School based COVID-19 testing playbook.

Schools know first-hand about the importance of keeping classrooms safe and healthy so that students can focus on their education. During the pandemic, the Learn to Return program was our state-wide solution to help schools build and implement COVID-19 testing efforts. While the program has ended, schools can still get access to the COVID-19 testing supplies that have helped to handle outbreaks and prevent interruptions to school life.

What is available for Washington state schools

Free tests – DOH will continue to offer free COVID-19 testing supplies to schools. Both point-of-care and take-home tests will be available.

Support - Educational Service Districts can offer schools support and help answer the questions you have about school testing.
