Asymptomatic weekly testing applies to several groups: unvaccinated staff, athletes
playing indoor sports, and those on modified quarantine following an on-campus
exposure to a Covid-19 positive person. Additionally, testing is required of all
unvaccinated coaches and volunteers working with or transporting students. This
program is being offered free of charge for students, staff and volunteers of Durham
Unified School District. This will help to ensure that we meet the California Department
of Public Health Guidelines currently in effect.

All consents are gathered electronically during this process and remain in effect for one
year. Many of the questions asked are used for local and State reporting purposes and
your information is not shared beyond that. Results will be shared with the contact
person provided on your registration after testing is completed. If there is a positive test
site administrators will also be notified automatically.
Type of Tests:
We are using the State testing program which utilizes the antigen or rapid Bianax Now test kits. The nasal swabs are sterilized by the use of radiation, not ethylene oxide. The test requires you to self-swab for 15 seconds per side in the lower nares (just inside your nose). The test takes 15 minutes to run and results will be sent via a link to your mobile phone and/or email.
Testing Days and Times:
Our testing site is in Portable #13 on the Durham Intermediate School campus (next to
the Durham Intermediate Gym). Testing will be available on Wednesdays
between 11:30am-3:00pm or by appointment by contacting the one of the following
530-895-4697 ext 224
530-895-4685 ext 226
Modified quarantine students will be tested between days 5-7 following a classroom exposure. If you wish to have your child who is on modified quarantine tested outside of school testing, please provide your
results to the Health Office once you receive them.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me, Jean Hensley, District Nurse, by phone
