Say Yes to the Test - Consent to both Random and Rapid COVID-19 Testing

One significant mitigation tactic Montgomery County Public Schools will use this fall is random COVID-19 screening tests and rapid testing across grades. MCPS, in partnership with the Maryland Department of Health, is offering COVID tests to students at no cost. Testing requires parent permission so "Say Yes to the Test".
Screening Testing-The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends random asymptomatic COVID-19 testing because it detects and can limit the spread of the virus, even in the absence of visible symptoms. 
Rapid Testing- Staff from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will determine that a COVID-19 rapid test should be administered when a student presents to a health room with potential COVID-19 symptoms
