Asymptomatic Testing in HWCDSB schools

Asymptomatic Testing in HWCDSB schools

The Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board will be holding asymptomatic targeted testing on a rotating basis at select elementary and secondary schools, starting February 20th.

The testing is voluntary for asymptomatic students and staff and is part of the province’s enhanced health and safety measures to keep schools and communities safe and to support public health officials in tracking and preventing the spread of COVID-19.

As new COVID-19 variants emerge in our province and community, testing is crucial to continue the downward trend of case counts in our province.

Asymptomatic targeted testing will be undertaken in at least 5% of the elementary and secondary schools each week. Priority will be given to schools with outbreaks, high transmission rates of COVID-19 and limited

The testing is open to asymptomatic students and staff from our HWCDSB schools as well as children and staff from our in-house child care centres. Household members of students and staff, and anyone with symptoms, should seek testing at an assessment centre.

This clinic will use a less invasive PCR testing method
