What COVID-19 tests are used in this program?

This program uses  BinaxNOW tests, which provide results in 15 minutes and are administered using a nasal swab in the front area of the nostril. These tests have been shown to be highly accurate, with accuracy rates of 97-98% for symptomatic individuals.

Who can be tested?

All CFISD students and staff are eligible for testing. A CFISD student ID or employee badge must be presented at the testing site for verification purposes. Consent for testing is required, and parents/legal guardians must consent for students under the age of 18.

Are other free testing sites available nearby?

Yes, however, these sites may not offer rapid tests.  Result times may vary. See https://publichealth.harriscountytx.gov/Resources/2019-Novel-Coronavirus/COVID-19-Testing-Information for a listing of Harris County and Houston free testing sites.

How much does the test cost?

The test is free.

How will the information from the tests be used?

Test results will be provided to parents/staff before departing the testing site.  The results will also be shared with the district and local health department to allow for public health reporting and contact tracing and to determine the stay-at-home period for individuals who test positive. Additionally, the total number of positive tests per school will be shared with the Texas Department of State Health Services, as is required by law.

What happens after I receive my test results?

If you test positive, this means you have COVID-19 antigens in your system.  The district will provide you with a return to work/school date and information on isolating from others. It is also recommended you contact your healthcare provider. 

The amount of traceable COVID-19 can vary in a person's body, so If you test negative and are symptomatic, you will be advised to contact your healthcare provider for an alternative diagnosis before returning to work/school.  

If you have any testing site questions or need additional information, please contact the CFISD Office of Emergency Management at 281-897-6448 or EmergencyManagement@cfisd.net .
