Return our Kids Back to school Safely
Regular testing helps to find COVID cases early, before the virus is able to spread in our schools and families. The more people who test regularly, the safer we all are. Sweetwater Union High School District (SUHSD) and San Diego State University have partnered on a research study examining how regular at-home testing affects transmission of COVID in schools and households. SUHSD and SDSU were 1 of 16 sites nationwide funded by the National Institutes of Health. Phase 1 studies found that participants were more receptive to at-home testing than school-site testing. SUHSD middle school students can participate in free weekly at-home COVID testing through a research study by SDSU.
