COVID-19 Testing for Christina Students

know your status

As we finalize our preparations for our return to school, we would like to share details with you on how you may get your child tested for COVID-19 prior to the start of in-school classes.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our school by children who may be unaware they have COVID-19, or display no symptoms (asymptomatic), we are STRONGLY URGING you to get your student tested. To facilitate this process, we are working closely with New Castle County to offer a variety of testing options.

Pre-Register for COVID-19 Testing

The DE Curative site will have the testing sites "live" for pre-registration. Each site can test approximately 1,200 students.

In addition to the NCC drive-through testing sites, parents have the option to have a student tested at a State Service Center, Walgreens, or Public Health Clinic. These permanent testing sites are organized by the DE Dept. of Public Health.
