Who Should Use the Rapid Test
GJPS is providing a limited number of the test kits as a proactive response to identify students and staff who may have been exposed to COVID-19 before they return to school following spring break. A limited number of kits are only available to current GJPS students and current GJPS staff members.
Symptomatic Individuals: This BinaxNOW Test is recommended for individuals suspected of COVID-19. It should be used within the first seven days of symptom onset.
Asymptomatic Individuals: For asymptomatic individuals with a known exposure or identified as a close contact to a probable/confirmed COVID-19 case, the test should be completed 4-7 days after the last exposure to the contact.
However, a negative test result will not remove the 10-day quarantine requirement if exposed to a probable/confirmed contact.
Use of these kits is DISCOURAGED for asymptomatic individuals with no known exposure or contact with a probable/confirmed COVID-19 case.
