School-Based COVID Testing

Summer 2022 Free COVID Testing

Opportunity to Participate in Free In-School COVID-19 Screening Testing

Charlottesville City Schools is pleased to partner with the state to offer a free, in-school COVID testing program this summer:

  • Wednesdays from 1-2pm at Martin Luther King Performing Arts Center at Charlottesville High School
  • June 22-August 10
  • Open for CCS students and staff (and staff immediate household members)
  • If you expect to test regularly, register here for summer testing so we’ll have pre-printed labels on hand. (Sign up again even if you tested during the school year.)
  • Cville Schools students and staff members can also walk-in and complete forms on site (staff members’ household members will also need to complete this registration form to confim that results will be reported to Cville Schools).

Sign Up Here!

How and When Will I Get Results?

Results will usually come back within 24 hour 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 post an update to this page saying “If you tested on [DATE] and haven’t been notified that you were positive, then you were NEGATIVE.”

What if I Need Proof of My Negative Test?

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

Need Extended Hours? Need More Family Members Tested?

If people need extended hours or if CHS students’ families need to be tested, they can go later in the day to Fashion Square Mall (or other days at BRHD testing sites). Find free testing opportunities from the Blue Ridge Health District here.

Back-to-School Testing Events

Stay tuned for events in August!
