Pool testing program ends Friday, April 9, 2021.

The Georgetown School Committee voted on April 8, 2021 to discontinue the pooled testing effective April 9, 2021. The reason for this decision was that only 20% of the school population participated in the program despite many attempts to increase participation. Implementing the polled testing program is labor intensive for our nurses and when we conducted a cost benefit analysis with our medical team, the recommendation was made to suspend the program. However, if cases rise and there is concern about school spread, we will reconsider reinstating the program. Thank you to all who participated!
