After consulting with health experts and reviewing the latest research on COVID-19 testing, we have elected to use a newer, more comfortable COVID-19 PCR test. The tests will be conducted via a self-administered saliva swab, which each person will do themselves while supervised by our school nurses. The process requires that you wipe a swab along your lower gum line ten times, Baldwin’s Wellness Team will be there to direct you throughout.
Baldwin has contracted with Fusion Healthcare Solutions and Anywhere Testing to offer testing for SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID19. The test is performed using an RT-PCR method approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under an Emergency Use Authorization. The laboratory with which Fusion Healthcare Solutions and Anywhere Testing has contracted to analyze our tests is Phi Life Sciences a CLIA and CAP accredited laboratory.
