These tests use either a saliva/inside the mouth swab or a nasal/inside the nose swab.
For each test, your student will swab her/him/them self or, if assistance is needed, by the school nurse.
Once samples have been collected for the day, they will be sent to Quadrant’s lab to be tested. Results will be ready within 24-48 hours and can be viewed by logging back into app.Clarifi-COVID-19.com.

A negative test result does necessarily allow your student return to class. Your student must still follow the district’s sick/return to school policy. Your student may still need to be seen by their healthcare provider. A follow-up COVID-19 test might be recommended.
