    Some basics about the program include:

     

    What tests are used in this program?

    This program uses BinaxNOW tests, which provide results in 15 minutes and are administered using a nasal swab in the front area of the nostril. These tests have been shown to be highly accurate, with accuracy rates of 97-98% for symptomatic individuals.

     

    How will the information from the tests be used?

    Staff will receive test results via text and will also receive a confirmation email within 24 hours. The results will also be shared with the school/district and with the local health department to allow for public health reporting and contact tracing and to determine the stay-at-home period for staff who test positive. Additionally, the total number of positive tests per school will also be shared with the Texas Department of State Health Services as is required by law.

    We will be following the Austin Public Health (APH) guidance for COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Tests, both for symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals. Click here to view the APH guidance.
