Voluntary COVID-19 Testing

PROGRAM UPDATE - February 18, 2022

Due to a significant decrease in COVID-19 cases in our schools and in our community, we are pausing the Voluntary COVID-19 Testing Program in our schools. Testing will not be offered after February 25. 

We will continue to monitor positive COVID-19 cases in our schools, and we will maintain the option to resume testing should the need arise in the future. 

Please direct any questions about the change in the program status to Pelham City Schools' lead nurse, Julie Stevenson. She can be reached via email at [email protected]

Pelham City Schools is partnering with University of Alabama Birmingham (UAB) School of Public Health in collaboration with the Alabama Department of Public Health and the Alabama State Department of Education to provide an additional mitigation initiative which offers free and voluntary asymptomatic COVID-19 testing for our students, faculty, and staff. Only students whose parents or legal guardians have given consent and only faculty and staff who have given consent will be tested.
