FONTANA, CA – Fontana Unified students will receive at-home COVID-19 tests as part of the District’s continued commitment to providing safe and healthy learning environments and a statewide effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in schools.
The District is working with the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools (SBCSS) to receive and distribute the rapid COVID-19 tests, which are being provided to school districts by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), as soon as possible. The state initiative to provide K-12 students with free, at-home COVID-19 tests was announced by Gov. Gavin Newsom in late December.
“Fontana Unified School District remains committed to supporting the health and well-being of our students, employees and families,” Fontana Unified Superintendent Randal S. Bassett said. “As COVID-19 cases continue to rise this winter, we urge our students and families to take precautions to stay healthy and remind our students to stay home if they are sick.”
In addition to the at-home, rapid antigen tests for students, Fontana Unified will continue to offer ongoing COVID-19 testing clinics, which are available to students, employees and the greater community. Testing clinics are available at all high school and middle school sites, as well as the District office.
FUSD students and employees can register for testing at www.testfontana.com. Community members who are not Fontana Unified students or employees may register for testing at https://www.covidclinic.org/fusd/.
The District will also continue to provide access to additional COVID-19 resources, such as continuing to follow safety protocols across District campuses, informing the District community of opportunities to get vaccinated, and more.
