Free COVID-19 Testing Program

We now offer free rapid COVID-19 testing for all symptomatic Galena students and staff that are eligible. This test is NOT for asymptomatic individuals, regardless of exposure.

If your child is experiencing COVID-like symptoms such as; fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea they MUST stay home and isolate until they receive a negative test result or an alternative diagnosis from their doctor.

To set up a free rapid COVID-19 test, please call the school to schedule an appointment. Testing is done every morning from 8:15-9:15 am at the Galena Middle School by our school nurse. Parents and guardians must sign a waiver form giving their consent before the test is performed. You will receive a phone call with your results in less than 30 minutes.
