COVID-19 Testing for Students

School-based Testing

The City’s routine COVID-19 random surveillance testing provides COVID-19 testing in school buildings to students who have opted into the program by submitting consent. Routine testing provides the community with an accurate representation of the prevalence of COVID-19 and helps schools stay safe. 

Beginning February 7, the in-school testing program will expand to test the number of students at each school that is equivalent to either 20% of the unvaccinated student population or 10% of student enrollment of grades 1-12 (up to a maximum of 250 students), whichever is higher. Testing will include both consented vaccinated and consented unvaccinated students.

  • Families with students in first grade and up can choose to participate in the program by completing the online form in their NYC Schools Account (Open external link) or returning a signed paper form to school.
