Uplift Education: Symptom-Free COVID-19 Testing Sites

To promote the safety of our entire Uplift in-person community, we are highly encouraging our families, scholars and staff to get their annual flu shot and consider getting tested for COVID-19 prior to their first day of in-person or hybrid learning. This is particularly important if your child is in the Middle School or High School, or is participating in sports or other extracurricular programs outside of school, or has been part of large social or family gatherings.  Please remember that most children are asymptomatic even if positive for COVID so by proactively testing before returning to in-person school, we can ensure that no member of our Uplift community is inadvertently exposing another member of our Uplift community to risk.  We have put together a list of locations in your community that offer free COVID-19 testing without requiring any signs of symptoms.
