Voluntary COVID-19 Testing
On site in our schools:
Our healthcare partners now offer COVID-19 testing by appointment for FCPS students and employees at every school. The testing is free and voluntary on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays. Note: The cutoff time for scheduling is 4 p.m. the day before.
- Sign up at your school (students or staff)
To reduce the amount of class time missed by students and staff, anyone who has been exposed to COVID-19 can participate in our Test to Stay in School program if:
- They are not experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, and
- They test negative during free on-campus testing before school on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
If you have symptoms, you should visit one of the other testing sites in the community.
Students and employees who develop symptoms during the school day can be tested by the school nurse or trained staff, and they will be sent home until symptoms resolve -- whether or not the test is positive.
Parental consent: COVID-19 testing at school can only be done at the request of a parent or guardian through our consent form. (If you completed a form before Jan. 14, please submit this new version.)

Community testing site
Maverick Health offers COVID-19 testing on weekdays outside host Lafayette High School. It's a non-invasive saliva test with fast results. This is a walk-up or drive-through station with no appointment needed, and it's free and open to all. Look for the blue tent to the right of the front parking lot at 401 Reed Lane.
