Starting after February vacation, the Gloucester Public Schools will start a Weekly COVID testing program at O'Maley School and Gloucester High School. We are piloting this program with our students and the staff at O’Maley and GHS because these schools have had a higher rate of positive cases than our pre-school and elementary schools and any possible spread is more likely to occur with older students.
Our current safety measures combined with testing for staff and students will lower the risk of transmission and allow us to continue our in-person learning. The more people who participate, the safer we will all be.
Why are we trying out Weekly Group Testing at O'Maley and GHS?
Pooled testing can quickly detect, trace, and isolate COVID-19 positive individuals. This will help us lower the risk of transmission and allow us to have more consistent in-person instruction.
Testing is quick and easy and is not painful or invasive
Participating in the pooled testing program is free
The program is voluntary but is strongly encouraged to help reduce the risk of COVID-19
Guardians need to sign a one-time consent form for their students to participate in pooled testing
