Throughout the pandemic, AUSD provided a robust COVID-19 testing program to students and staff. At various times, that testing included regular background PCR testing for students in grades K-6, free drop-in PCR testing at campuses across the school district, and PCR testing in response to positive cases.
Because public health authorities no longer recommend broad testing for asymptomatic students, AUSD no longer provides background PCR testing for asymptomatic students. Rapid antigen tests, however, are available at each school site for any students or staff who need them.
As of March 28, 2022, National Labs is also no longer providing free PCR testing at the Lum Elementary School site.
