LSR7 provides free COVID-19 rapid antigen testing
The State of Missouri has provided the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District with BionaxNOW COVID-19 antigen tests free of charge, and the district will be making those tests available to students and staff who are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19.
The tests effectively identify COVID-19 positive individuals and are especially effective when administered in the early stages of an infection, including when a person either has a known exposure to a confirmed case of COVID-19 or is exhibiting preliminary symptoms of the virus. Test results are available in minutes.
Student Rapid Testing
It’s important to note that because of the ranges in incubation times, negative results do not definitively rule out an active infection. Students with negative tests will be encouraged to follow up with a medical provider for additional testing.
LSR7 students who have been experiencing COVID-19 symptoms for seven days or less are eligible for a free COVID-19 rapid antigen test.
To schedule an appointment for testing, the LSR7 student’s parent/guardian should contact their child’s school nurse to describe the student’s symptoms. Nurses will work with families to schedule rapid testing. Appointments are required to receive these services.
Testing dates and times will be available Mondays and Thursdays from 4:30-7:30 p.m. on any day (virtual or in-person) that LSR7 is in session.
