COVID Testing Recommendations

DCPS aims to test 10-20% of unvaccinated kids weekly in each school. Evidence of presymptomatic and asymptomatic transmission, even in vaccinated people and particularly given the Delta variant, shows that we need responsive and universal testing to prevent the spread of infection in schools. Schools should (1) Implement rapid antigen testing for symptomatic students and staff, (2) Implement a rapid antigen testing test-to-stay program to reduce quarantine, (3) Speed up PCR result return times (to 6-18 hours) and test 100% of students each week with the asymptomatic PCR program.

This will dramatically reduce the ability of Covid to spread in schools.

Data from DC Government

Cumulative Totals of positives in DCPS. These totals were reset to zero at the start of school on Aug 30, 2021.


School notifications. These lag by up to a week behind the totals. Notifications go up when the school community is notified (after they tell the positive family, then close contacts, then class)


Charts and graphs and a school by school breakdown. Hard to read and lots of data is missing
