School District Launches COVID-19 Testing Program for Employees
Carson City, Nev. (Oct. 20, 2020) — The Carson City School District will offer free COVID-19 testing for all school employees in two drive-thru events. Information about the dates, times and location have already been provided to employees. After the drive-thru events, employees who become symptomatic at work may be tested by one of the school nurses.
The testing program promotes the health and safety of staff, students, families and communities by preventing the introduction and spread of COVID-19 in Nevada’s schools.
The self-monitoring and testing program will be administered through a mobile app, powered by Emocha Health (a leading health screening mobile application originated at Johns Hopkins University), to help assess COVID-19 related health risks, track symptoms and communicate with appropriate state and district entities on matters related to the virus.
