Test to Stay Program

Test to Stay (TTS) is a program that allows individuals who have been exposed and who are not fully vaccinated to participate in daily COVID-19 testing so they may continue to attend school during their quarantine period.

Students who have been exposed and do not have symptoms may test for the first 5 days after exposure and remain in school as long as the test is negative and they do not have symptoms.

Students are eligible to participate if they have a known exposure to COVID-19 and are not fully vaccinated. Students also MUST be able to wear a face covering at all times during those 5 days at school. Students who are unable to wear a face covering appropriately cannot participate.

Students who are fully vaccinated and/or who had COVID-19 within the last 90 days may still attend school as they monitor for symptoms, and no testing is required.

Students who participate will only test on school days. As long as the student tests negative and does not have symptoms, they will be able to attend school while wearing a face covering.

For more information about Test to Stay, please contact your school nurse.
