COVID-19 Testing

To further support successful in-person instruction and help diminish community transmission of COVID-19, the Yonkers Public Schools is collaborating with the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) to provide COVID-19 rapid surveillance testing in schools using the BinaxNOW™ COVID-19 Ag Card.

Students with parental consent and staff may volunteer to be tested at school. Students and staff consent forms are available at this link and at testing sites. All results are confidential. Positive surveillance test results are required to be reported to the NYSDOH.
