What is this form?
We are seeking your consent to test your child for COVID-19 infection. The New York City Department of Education (NYC
DOE), working with NYC Health + Hospitals and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, has partnered
with laboratories and other providers to test NYC DOE students, teachers, and staff members for COVID-19 infection.
How often would you test my child?
We are arranging for our laboratory and provider testing partners to come to every school at least once a month to test
some of the students and staff. If you consent, your child may be selected for testing on one or more of these occasions.
In addition, your child may also be tested throughout the school year (1) in accordance with state and city mandates,
such as weekly testing in schools in Yellow Zones, or (2) if they exhibit one or more symptoms of COVID-19, or (3) if they
are a close contact of a student, teacher, or staff person with COVID-19 infection.
