Consent for COVID-19 Testing

The North Pocono School District has a COVID-19 testing program under the guidance of the PA Department of Health and Concentric by Ginkgo. Test to Stay is a program that, when combined with regular COVID-19 mitigation measures (e.g., masking, social distancing), allows unvaccinated or partially-vaccinated students and staff who are identified as close contacts in certain school settings to continue in-person education, so long as they remain asymptomatic and serially test negative for COVID-19. The following links provide information about the Test to Stay program and frequently asked questions (please note that the links take you to sites outside of the North Pocono website; the North Pocono School District is not responsible for the content of these sites):
