COVID-19 Testing

COVID-19 Testing at Schools

Responsive Lab Partners medical professionals, will be at all San Diego Unified schools to conduct COVID-19 testing for students and staff, free of charge.

For safety reasons, there is no walk up testing at any school for staff and students who do not attend that school. No staff or student should go to a different school expecting to test, especially if they have symptoms (itinerant staff, please sign up and test at one school). Staff or students from other schools who have symptoms or need a test to return should seek a test at either our Ed Center testing facility, through their own insurance, or at a county testing facility.


Please see schedule below:
