COVID-19 testing is not available at Orange County Public Schools again until Tuesday because of the holiday weekend.

COVID-19 testing at seven Orange County Public School sites will resume on Tuesday, September 7 at Avalon Elementary.

Orange County Department of Health teams staff the rotating daily clinics seven days a week from 4 to 8 on weekdays and 10 to 4 on weekends.

Testing on weekdays is reserved for OCPS teachers, students and parents, while the sites open up to the broader community on weekends.

Anyone getting tested must present a valid ID and children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Ahead of the school holiday, there were more than 4,200 confirmed COVID cases in the district. Over 1,200 students and staff were actively quarantined.

Here are other sites in the county where families can get tested.
