Jefferson Parish Schools launches program to curb spread of COVID-19

Jefferson Parish Schools has launched a program to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and continue in-person learning. The “Test to Stay” program can be taken by any unvaccinated or asymptomatic student or employee who has come into close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19. The test will determine if that person will be allowed to return to school. If the person has COVID-19 or develops symptoms, they will not be allowed to take the test and will need to follow current quarantine guidelines. School officials hope the program will reduce disruption to teaching and learning. For more information, click here.
