The Department of Health guidance serves as the mandatory baseline of health and safety protocols for school districts to follow.  Testing is part of a continuum of mitigation efforts that includes mandatory daily temperature checks and other additional screening, testing for symptomatic individuals or exposures and contact tracing in the event of a positive case.

The district has a plan in place in which any positive cases will be tracked through established contact tracing protocols and in coordination with the local health department.

If anyone has or is suspected of having COVID-19 symptoms, they will be referred to their primary care physician, urgent care center or the Schenectady County Department of Health to be directed to a testing site.    

In the event that a large-scale testing will need to be conducted at the school, the district administration will work with the Schenectady County Department of Health, Hometown Health and Ellis Hospital.

The district will consult and work closely with the Schenectady County Department of Health on a case by case basis.
