Click Here to Begin the Process

As part of the Increased Community Access to Testing (ICATT) program, Petersburg City Public Schools  is offering FREE voluntary COVID-19 testing to staff and students. 

Mitigation strategies such as face coverings, handwashing, social distancing, and additional cleaning & disinfecting measures are in place to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission among students, teachers, and staff in school buildings. COVID-19 testing and screening are an additional layer to ensure that our students and staff are safe in our schools to the greatest extent possible.

 

Layers of mitigation

 

Why are COVID-19 testing and screening important?

  • Identify and quarantine people without symptoms before they can spread the virus, thus maximizing student access to in-person learning
  • Prevent disease spread in the greater community
  • Additional evidence that mitigation strategies and practices are working
  • Peace of mind for students, staff, and families
  • Provide data that can be used to inform future school policies
