COVID Testing Program

Athletics & Activities Testing Not Required, But Encouraged

The Jefferson County Public Health order JPH-PHO-21-002 (PHO) that required Jeffco Public Schools to implement weekly COVID testing for unvaccinated students who participate in extracurricular athletics and/or activities has expired as of December 22, 2021. 

In response to this, we are no longer requiring weekly COVID testing for unvaccinated students who particpiate in extracurricular athletics and/or activities.

Although testing is no long required per the county-issued public health order, we strongly encourage all students to be regularly tested, especially unvaccinated individuals and those that have a known exposure.

Our testing program partner Mobile Health will still be at the locations below to administer testing for staff and students. These dates, times, and locations are subject to change. Please check this web page frequently or call your local school for more information. 

Any asymptomatic staff and student may test weekly at any hub no matter their vaccination status.
 

STUDENT INCENTIVE PROGRAM

Student Incentive Program

CDPHE is administering a student incentive program for participating in surveillance COVID-19 testing. All students under the age of 18 in participating schools that have parental consent on file are eligible for this free COVID-19 school screening testing incentive program regardless of their current vaccination status. Students that are 18 years old or older do not need parental consent on file, but will still need to register to be tested.

A student must be tested to receive the incentive. Students are eligible to receive a maximum of one incentive per week. A participating student will receive $25 for the first COVID-19 test that is administered to them through this program. A student can then receive $10 for every subsequent test that is administered each week (at a maximum of one incentive allowed per week).

Students will receive their incentive(s) monthly and retroactively, via a gift card mailed to their address on file with the parental consent. For example, if a student tested in September, in early October, the student will receive a gift card loaded with all total incentives earned in the moth of September.
