Testing Your Student at Home as They Return from Break

This holiday season, California encourages all school children to access at-home COVID-19 testing as they return to school following the holiday break. To help make this a reality, California is providing 1–2 rapid tests  for each K–12 public school student. These tests are being provided to local school districts via county offices of education. 

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 from winter break.

Please also visit our Testing & COVID-19 and Holiday Gathering & Travel toolkits for additional resources.

School administrators, please email with questions.

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