Consent Form for COVID-19 Testing for Athletics During 2021-22 School Year
What is this form?
We are seeking your consent to test your student-athlete for COVID-19 for participation in athletics during the 2021-22 school year.
How often would you test my child?
School staff will test students (and coaches) based on the rate of community transmission per CDC guidance. Please visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/k-12-guidance.html for more information.
What is the test?
If you consent, your child will receive a free diagnostic test for the COVID-19 virus. Collecting a specimen for testing involves inserting a small swab, similar to a Q-Tip, into the front of the nose. Please visit https://youtu.be/AvFLbHbt1bs for a video on this process.
What should I do when I receive my child’s test results?
Test results will be available to school staff within 15 minutes. You will only be contacted if your child is positive. If your child’s test results are positive, please contact your child’s doctor immediately to review the results and discuss what you should do next. You should keep your child at home and inform your child’s principal. If your child’s test results are negative, this means that the virus was not detected in your child’s specimen. If your child tests negative but has symptoms of COVID-19, or if you have concerns about your child’s exposure to COVID-19, you should call your child’s doctor or a local urgent care facility.
