Drive-Thru COVID-19 Rapid Testing at Select Jefferson County Public Schools
JCPS is partnering with Louisville Metro Public Health & Wellness and Sphere to set up drive-thru sites for free, voluntary COVID-19 testing. Testing will be available by appointment to any JCPS student, employee, and parent/guardian; a limited number of unscheduled walk-up/drive-ups will be accommodated. Beginning March 15, rapid/antigen testing will be available at the following school sites Mondays-Thursdays from 3-7 p.m.
COVID-19 rapid/antigen testing at these sites is voluntary and is available to any JCPS student, employee, or parent/guardian who feels they may have been exposed to COVID-19, including those who are asymptomatic. Adults are asked to bring photo ID.
Voluntary Testing Sites for JCPS Students, Parents/Guardians, and Employees
ALL JCPS school sites will be provided with testing kits for students or staff who arrive at school with symptoms of illness. The above sites are for those within the JCPS family who are asymptomatic, may choose to get tested regularly, and/or have been referred for testing as part of contact tracing efforts.
