Testing for OKCPS Staff
OKCPS is partnering with Total Wellness and Oklahoma City County Health Department (OCCHD) to provide rapid COVID-19 antigen testing for staff memberds and/or members of their household who are over the age of 18. Testing is voluntary. By offering free testing to our staff, OKCPS hopes to eliminate the barrier of access to testing.
Any OKCPS employee who is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or has had a known exposure to a positive person can be tested. At this time, staff need to fit into one of those categories to be tested. If you are being tested due to an exposure, health officials recommend waiting 5 days after exposure before being tested. Additionally, any family member of the employee who lives within their household and is over the age of 18 is also eligible to be tested as long as they also fit into the criteria listed above.
OKCPS will offer testing at seven (7) locations: Adelaide Lee Elementary, Britton Elementary, Emerson North High School, Eugene Field Elementary, John Marshall Enterprise Middle School, Willow Brook Elementary and the Student Services Center at Westwood.
OKCPS will also work with OCCHD to deploy the COVID-19 vaccine to staff when it’s available.
