METUCHEN, NJ – The Metuchen Public School District will be offering COVID-19 testing for all students and staff on Thursdays and Saturdays, said school superintendent Vincent Caputo.
The school district has partnered with Back to Work Solutions to conduct the tests and had an initial test day back in Dec. 31.
Testing will be conducted Thursdays from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for staff; and 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. for students; and on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for staff and students.
Officials said the tests are conducted to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as schools reopen. The school district said it will cover the charges and costs of all tests for staff and students who don’t have insurance or whose insurance does not cover COVID testing.
Those who want to be tested have to register in advance and complete a virtual telemedicine visit prior to test day. No walk-ups are permitted.
Students and staff must arrive at the test with their printed telemedicine Covid-19 test script in hand, which will be emailed after the telemedicine visit.
Students from Mildred B. Moss Elementary School, Campbell Elementary School and Edgar Middle School must be accompanied by an adult in order to be tested.
Any further questions can be sent to Covidtesting@metuchenschools.org.
Testing takes place at the Metuchen High School Wrestling Room.
