COVINA – In accordance with the recent surge in COVID-19 cases and revised health protocols outlined by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH), Covina-Valley Unified School District provided District students with more than 6,000 free, at-home COVID-19 testing kits during drive-thru distribution events on Jan. 6 and 7.
Covina-Valley Unified worked with the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) to receive and distribute the tests, which are being provided to school districts by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).
Over the course of the distributions, District students and families gathered at the Covina-Valley Unified School District Field to obtain their testing kits containing two COVID-19 tests and instructions on how to administer them.
“At Covina-Valley Unified, our top priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our students, staff, and families,” said Jonathan Blackmore, Covina-Valley Unified’s Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services. “We appreciate our community’s support as we review and implement the new health orders while minimizing the disruption of student learning.”
Covina-Valley Unified’s distribution of at-home tests is part of a statewide effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in schools and bolsters the District’s ongoing efforts to support the health and safety of the District community.
In addition to the at-home tests, Covina-Valley Unified continues to offer COVID-19 resources to students, staff, and the community. For more information on the District’s COVID-19 resources and protocols, please visit https://www.c-vusd.org/.
