Safe Steps to Safe Schools

  • Los Angeles Unified COVID-19 Testing Program


    Following the guidance of our medical advisors and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health – and subject to changes to LACDPH COVID-19 Prevention and Response Guidelines for Education Settings, LAUSD Unified will implement “response testing.”

    Individuals experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or who have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive will be recommended to test. All testing will be conducted with take-home rapid antigen tests, which are available for students and employees at your school or worksite. All school campuses will also continue to monitor rapid antigen test results and notify individuals if they are a close contact with someone who has tested positive.
