Covid 19 Testing

Covid 19 Testing

In adhering to the recommendation of the Sacramento County Department of Health and in conjunction with SCOE, the District is participating in surveillance testing of all employees.   This action’s purpose is to aid in the safe reopening of schools and providing the best possible working environment for our staff and students.  Employees are being asked to help by agreeing to (voluntary) testing every two months on a rotational basis in an effort to identify positive cases of COVID-19 as efficiently as possible.  The ability to be notified of a positive case will hopefully reduce and limit exposure of the virus to other employees, students and community members. 
Testing will be of no cost to employees and is confidential.  Please click on this link, website, and scroll down to Free Testing sites in Sacramento County, along with their locations and hours of operation.  Please choose a testing site and go online to make an appointment/registration that is convenient for you.  We ask that you make appointments outside of your work hours.  If you have any questions, please contact David Grimes at davidgrimes@centerusd.org or (916) 338-6413.
The following is the testing schedule for all employees according to your last name:
A – D        Nov 1 –Nov 15             Jan 1 – Jan 17              March 1 – March 13
