In news today…

Through the difficulties of the pandemic, Cleveland City Schools has been able to provide COVID testing to all students and staff throughout the district since early fall of 2021. Today the COVID testing program will become mobile. Through funding from the CDC’s Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity COVID testing grant (ELC), Cleveland City Schools has acquired a mobile testing clinic to serve students and faculty through the continued unknowns of the pandemic.

The ELC COVID Testing Grant funds were intended to support the reopening and in-person instruction of K-12 schools through supporting comprehensive screening testing for K-12 schools. Initial testing began in fall of 2021 and will extend through summer programming in 2022, as funds allow.

The mobile testing clinic will be equipped to perform rapid and PCR tests. The clinic will provide walk-in and drive-thru capabilities at multiple locations within our school community. Priority location will be given to the school that might be seeing the highest numbers of COVID-related illness. The mobile clinic can also be used to provide an efficient mass testing site in the event of another spike within our community.
