Testing Resources and Information
Benton-Franklin Health District COVID-19 Testing Site Locator
RSD schools will have COVID-19 tests available for students and staff for following scenarios:
- Student/staff member begins to show symptoms while at school or work
- Student/staff member is symptomatic and needs testing before attending school or reporting to work
All testing provided through RSD is done with rapid antigen tests. Regardless of test result, students who have a temperature greater than 100 degrees or severe COVID-like symptoms will need to go home and return according to current guidance.
Testing is voluntary and tests will not be administered on students without prior parent/guardian notification and proper consent from the parent or legal guardians. To help facilitate the testing, families may complete the COVID-19 Testing Consent Form and return it to their child's school if the parents want their student to be tested if needed. Completed consent forms will be kept in the health room.
If a student is feeling ill at school and has COVID-19-like symptoms, health staff will verify the student has written consent on file and make efforts to contact families before administering a rapid test. If a student does not have a written consent on file, a parent will be contacted to ask if they would still like to have their child tested. If yes, two school staff members must witness the verbal consent before the test is administered.
