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 County Health Officer Orders – beginning Monday, June 13, 2022 and continuing for the new school year, Los Angeles Unified will implement a “response testing” protocol: 

    Instead of requiring every student and employee to test weekly with a PCR test, only those who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, or who have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive, will be required to test. (Students and employees at Early Education and Care programs will continue to test weekly with PCR testing through the end of their school year, which is June 30, 2022.) 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 use the Daily Pass portal for daily health screening questions, monitoring rapid antigen test results and to notify individuals if they are a close contact of someone who has tested positive. 


    Through Thursday, June 30th, Los Angeles Unified will continue to provide free PCR testing for employees and students at stationary testing sites throughout the District.

    While appointments are encouraged, no appointment is needed for Los Angeles Unified COVID-19 tests.


    In addition to these sites, mobile testing teams will be visiting Early Education and Care program sites until Thursday, June 30, 2022 to test students and staff at those locations on a weekly basis.

    Check out when the mobile COVID testing team will be at your school:


    If you have tested positive for COVID-19 and you are asymptomatic, you may wish to take a rapid antigen test on or after Day 5 of your isolation period to return early to work or school. Rapid antigen tests are available at symptomatic testing locations until Thursday, June 30th, or from your school or worksite. A photo of the test result must be uploaded onto the Daily Pass and include the individual's full name, date of birth, and date of test on a separate piece of paper, visible in the photo. Test results will be reviewed for approval by the Community Engagement team.
