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:
- Test their children for COVID-19 as they return back to school from break, and
- 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 schoolOTC@cdph.ca.gov with questions.
Share the following resources with your communities. This material is downloadable and shareable.
