COVID-19 Testing

PCR Testing Options for SFPS Students

Symptomatic staff and students who have not provided evidence of COVID-19 vaccination are encouraged to get tested for COVID-19 with a PCR test (VAULT, Curative or Public Health Office testing site) and should remain in isolation until the results are available. A negative test result will discontinue the isolation and the student or staff member may be allowed to return to school provided that the symptoms do not interfere with the ability to work or learn at school. If an unvaccinated symptomatic person has had a known exposure to COVID-19, they must quarantine for the full 10 days regardless of a negative test.
