Who can be tested? All students in grades PreK-12 who attend Albany Area Schools and all Albany Area Schools staff members are eligible to participate in the COVID-19 testing program. Testing is being provided utilizing resources allocated by the MN Department of Education.
How is the testing done? The test being administered on site is the Cue test, a rapid molecular PCR test, which includes gently swabbing the inner part of the lower nostril. This test is not painful. We do not use the longer swabs that reach higher in the nose.
Where and when is the testing done? The district’s testing site is located in the BEAT concession stand at the Secondary School. Testing hours vary slightly each week and will be updated online each Monday.
Identifying and isolating students and staff who are COVID positive helps us stop the spread of COVID in our buildings and keep students in the classroom and able to take part in the school activities they love.
