Virginia to launch pilot program to test for COVID at schools

As more and more school systems return to in-person learning, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) is set to launch a pilot program to test for COVID-19 among students and staff. VDH's Deputy Director for the Office of Epidemiology Dr. Laurie Forlano said they have received preliminary interest from seven or eight school divisions and are in the process of finalizing details and they could begin in the coming weeks.
