? FYI: MCPS COVID-19 Testing Begins April 23 at Blair High School

Text and image below from the Montgomery Blair High School’s ‘Principal’s Newsletter‘ (April 2021).

MCPS has established a pooled testing process for schools. Results are typically available within 2-3 days. If a student’s group identifies a positive result, then additional testing will be offered. Blair’s pooled testing will start on Friday April 23, 2021 and will be offered each Friday thereafter.

Here are five important things to know about the pooled testing process:

  • The testing is pooled and does not identify individual results nor collect personal information.
  • MCPS has developed a contact tracing and notification process to ensure safety and privacy.

For additional information, please watch the MCPS Pooled testing video .

If you have any additional questions about pooled testing, please contact Assistant Principal Joe Fanning via e-mail.
