COVID-19 TESTING

Who can get tested?

Battle Ground Public Schools offers COVID-19 testing to students and staff who are symptomatic or identifed as close contacts of a person who has a confirmed case of COVID-19. All others should seek testing through their medical provider or at another testing location.

Testing may reduce the number of school days that symptomatic students and close contacts would have to miss. A negative test result could enable these students to shorten their quarantine period and return to school sooner. See the Department of Health COVID-19 Decision Tree or talk with your healthcare provider or school nurse for more information.

Do I need an appointment?

No, walk-ins are welcome during testing hours: 10:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m. on school days, Monday–Friday. Please register on the Curative web portal before heading to the testing site to help expedite the process.

How much does it cost?

Testing is free for Battle Ground Public Schools students and staff who are symptomatic or identified as close contacts of a person who has a confirmed case of COVID-19. The district is participating in a state program that provides the tests to schools.

What test do you offer?

We offer the PCR test, which stands for polymerase chain reaction test. This test remains the gold standard for detecting an active COVID-19 infection. It determines if a person is infected by analyzing a sample taken with a nasal swab to see if it contains genetic material from the virus.

This reliable test can shorten the quarantine period of asymptomatic students who are identified as close contacts, as long as the test is taken on or after Day 5 of being exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19. If the result is negative, close contacts can return to school on Day 8 after being exposed.

How long does it take to get results?

It could take anywhere from 24 to 72 hours to get results of a PCR test.
