When Does the In-School Weekly Testing Start

It will start the week of August 29 and will follow a similar schedule to last year (Mondays -Wednesdays.) We’ll post information when details are final. Sign up here (even if you got tested last year or over the summer).

How and When Will I Get Results?

Results will usually come back within 24 hours and are reported directly to the Virginia Department of Health and Charlottesville City Schools. Anyone who tests positive will be notified by phone call. After any positive cases are notified, we will send an email communicating negative test results to anyone who registered via this website. (Anyone who registered just prior to the testing event or who registered on-site should know that “no news is good news.”)

What if I Need Proof of My Negative Test?

If you need proof of your negative test, please call 245-2400.

Need Extended Hours?
