COVID-19 Testing Information

The District has partnered with Inspire Diagnostics to offer an outdoor walk-up PCR testing site, which is open to the entire school community. The testing site is located at the District Office:  325 Marion Avenue, Ben Lomond.
It will be open starting March 7, 2022 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays (excluding holidays) from 1 - 5pm.
The site is available for symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals and most test results are returned within 24 hours -- comparatively faster than most alternatives. Students and their families are welcome to utilize this free service. Those needing a test simply need to fill out the registration one time at and can go to any Inspire Diagnostics site. No appointment is required.
Our weekly exposure testing will continue at the school sites for both students and staff.
The District provides testing in partnership with Inspire Diagnostics. By registering your student(s) with Inspire Diagnostics, your student(s) can test for weekly screening or for exposures as necessary. When your student(s) participates in this weekly screening and/or exposure testing, he/she is eligible to remain in school during a "modified" quarantine.
To register your student(s), please click on INSPIRE DIAGNOSTICS REGISTRATION
