Student and Staff Testing Information

Student and Staff COVID-19 Testing Information

The Watertown Public Schools continues to mandate student COVID-19 PCR pooled testing weekly.

Protocols such as face coverings, hand washing, social distancing, and additional cleaning measures are in place to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission among students, teachers, and staff in school buildings. Student COVID-19 PCR pooled testing is an additional layer to ensure that our students and staff are safe in our schools as best we possibly can be.

Student testing has maximized in-person learning by quickly detecting, tracing, and isolating COVID-19-positive individuals—whether or not they become symptomatic. And, it provides families and staff with peace of mind. The current safety measures in place combined with testing for staff and students lowers the risk of transmission and allows more consistent access to in-person instruction for our students.
