Testing Your Student at Home as They Return from Breaks

California encourages all schoolchildren to access at-home COVID-19 testing as they return to school following breaks. 

California encourages parents to:

  1. Test their children for COVID-19 as they return back to school from break, and
  2. Share the test results with their local health department via the Primary.Health link sent by your school or, if you did not receive a school link, report via the Primary.Health website or by accessing Primary.Health with a smartphone (by scanning a QR code).

Please use the following resources to encourage parents to access at-home COVID-19 testing as they send their children back to school following breaks.

Please also visit our Testing & COVID-19 toolkit for additional resources.

School administrators, please email schoolOTC@cdph.ca.gov with questions.

Share the following resources with your communities. This material is downloadable and shareable.
