In partnership with the Spokane Regional Health District, Gonzaga Prep is pleased to announce the ability to administer BinaxNow COVID-19 Rapid Antigen testing on campus. The test clinic will begin operation on school days from 7:45-8:30 a.m. each morning in room 84 (across from the Fitness Center). The purpose and availability of an on-campus testing program is to provide:
- Voluntary testing for students who are symptomatic or have had an exposure to Covid-19.
- Exemption from a classroom quarantine through testing protocol (this exemption does not apply to adjacent student quarantine, only full-class quarantine as a result of 2+ cases in the same classroom). More information can be found about the testing exemption from the SRHD website.
- Athletic participation - Wrestlers are required to present a negative test on each match day in order to be eligible for competition.
According to SRHD guidelines, fully vaccinated students are exempt from any quarantine situations
, unless showing symptoms. If you are looking for a vaccination location for your student, please visit the vaccination locator website: https://vaccinelocator.doh.wa.gov/
