CCSD Nurses Trained to Deliver COVID-19 Surveillance Testing

Our school nurses continued their training January 13 on Abbott’s BinaxNOW COVID-19 test kits in preparation for any possible future surveillance testing in schools. Pictured here, Questar III health and safety officer Patrick Paratore leads MED school nurse Mary-Noelle Fabiano through the testing procedure. CCSD will be required to test 20% of our students and staff over a two-week period in order to stay open for in-person learning if our area is deemed a cluster zone. Currently, the test kits are only made available to schools that are in cluster zones.
