K-12 COVID-19 Testing

Dear Met Families,
I hope your child has had a good first few days connecting with their advisor and friends from school. We are happy to welcome them back.
I'm writing to share that COVID-19 rapid testing for symptomatic students and educators that work in schools in Rhode Island is available. The link below takes you to the RI Department of Health web-page dedicated to testing for schools, with the phone numbers and locations of testing facilities, an explanation of how and why to get tested, and how quickly results are given.
How And When To Schedule A Test
To schedule a test, call the K-12 COVID-19 test (for school staff and students only) scheduling service at 844-857-1814, seven days a week from 7:30 a.m. - 9:30 p.m. Please note that this service line is only for N-12 staff and students who have symptoms or who have been identified as a close contact of a positive case or a classmate of a positive case. Services are available in multiple languages.
Thank you for your support and take care,
Rhode Island Department of Health
