Free Rapid Covid Testing for Students

The Florida Department of Health (FDOH) Emergency Rule 64DER21-12 provides opportunities for public school students to reduce quarantine or shorten isolation if they are asymptomatic and receive a negative test for COVID-19.

The COVID-19 Diagnostic Laboratory PCR test is no longer a required test for students to return to school.

In accordance with recent guidance from the FDOH, Rapid COVID-19 tests are acceptable tests to minimize out-of-school time for students.
