On Friday, January 22 from 8:00 am to 11:00 am, Weeping Water Public Schools will be offering free COVID-19 testing for students, staff, and faculty. This resource is made available, at no cost, thanks to the partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), the Department of Education, and the Operations Team with Test Nebraska. Due to staff and time limitations, there is a set number of tests that can be performed each day, and this testing is done on a first-come, first-serve and volunteer basis.
The Nurses will be doing a nasal mid-turbinate swab, NOT a nasopharyngeal swab. We feel this method is less invasive and we hope to receive more volunteers. Test results will be provided within 72 hours of the email that is used with registration.
