COVID-19 Testing for Students and Staff

Overview

Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD) is pleased to offer free and voluntary COVID-19 screening testing for all students and staff at schools that are currently open for in-person learning.

SCUSD is utilizing two types of COVID tests.  Both tests are self-administered nasal swabs, which means individuals use a long soft cotton swab to gently circulate in each nostril. These tests are simple enough for children to do themselves with a person instructing and observing.
