UCPS is partnering with a third party provider (Ethos Labs out of Newport, KY) to administer a voluntary Test to Stay program. With this program, students and staff members who are quarantined will have the option of taking a rapid antigen Covid-19 test each morning to potentially eliminate the need to quarantine. Students and staff members testing negative will be able to attend school/work that day.
Test to Stay guidelines include:
There will be multiple campuses throughout the district serving as testing sites.
Parents/Guardians must provide consent for their child to be tested on-site through the provider’s online link at www.ethosbacktoschool.com.
The test will be performed in the lower part of nasal cavity.
Those participating in Test to Stay will be required to arrive at school early in order to complete testing before school.
Testing will begin as soon as possible from the last day of exposure (day 0) through day 5. Each day the student/staff tests negative, they will be able to stay for the day as long as they remain symptom-free. If the individual develops symptoms any time after this through day 10, they should test again.
Test to Stay is an option for anyone who has been identified as a close contact of a positive case as long as they do not have ongoing contact with the positive case (live in the same household, etc.)
There is no cost to students and staff for this testing service.
Those who are symptomatic may choose to get tested with this third party provider, but would need to make arrangements in advance prior to reporting for testing.
DO NOT send your child to school if they are symptomatic without speaking to school health staff first. This will help prevent any other potential exposure.
