This fall, APS will provide free COVID-19 testing (symptomatic and asymptomatic) in-school for students, with parent/guardian consent, and staff. Walk-up testing will also be available after school hours.
All testing is free with no out-of-pocket charges, regardless of whether or not you are insured.
Antigen test results are available within 15 minutes, while PCR-RT test results are typically available 24 to 48 hours and are emailed to parents. For those students or staff who test positive, the laboratory Medical Director will call directly to relay the results and provide specific advice regarding further action.
APS is providing the free testing in partnership with ResourcePath, a CLIA-licensed and College of American Pathologists accredited molecular diagnostics laboratory.
Walk-up testing sites after school hours at Kenmore Middle and Wakefield High Schools provide trained staff to assist in mid-nasal swab testing using the RT-PCR test: https://www.resourcepath.net/covid-19-testing-at-aps/
