COVID-19 RANDOM TESTING INITIATIVE
Here’s the recording from Wednesday’s Watch Party. Hopefully this helps familiarize yourself with the protocol, so you can help support parents when they have questions.
Attached is the family letter that describes the testing initiative and consent form.
Families can also provide consent for their child to be tested using their NYC Schools Account (NYCSA). You can reference NYCSA/FAM Technical Guide and NYCSA Wiki for additional information on how to support families in creating and using their NYCSA account.
This short and friendly video (produced by NYC DOHMH) demonstrates the process for children. You may consider showing this to families to help make the testing process less scary for them. Student Covid Test Step-by-Step Video
