COVID-19 Self Test Kit Distribution 3/1/22

COVID-19 Self Test Kit Distribution 3/1/22
Superintendent Stringfellow

Dear Norwich Families and Staff,


The Norwich Public Schools will receive the Phase 3 distribution of COVID-19 self-test kits tomorrow, March 1, 2022. These kits are for the further protection of staff, children and families. The Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH) is recommending that each student and staff member be given two (2) kits for use in the following
manner:

• Self-testing for students or staff with symptoms consistent with COVID-19, as recommended by the CDC and CT DPH.
• Self-testing for students or staff who had direct exposure to an individual with COVID-19.
• If a class or program is experiencing multiple cases of COVID-19, a school may recommend self-testing of all students and staff in that classroom or program.


For students or staff that have had COVID-19 in the last 90 days, there is no need to test for COVID-19 again unless symptoms arise.


The kits will be sent directly to the schools and then distributed to students and staff accordingly. Each kit contains two (2) tests, so each staff and student will receive four (4) tests total.

 

Sincerely,

Kristen E. Stringfellow, Ed.D.

Superintendent
