Free, weekly COVID-19 tests available for South Dakota students

Coronavirus

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — The Health Department is offering families a screening option in hopes of slowing the spread of COVID-19 in South Dakota schools.

In addition to watching for symptoms, students can now receive free weekly COVID-19 tests if their district is participating.

The program is voluntary. If you’re interested, first check if your school is taking part in the weekly program and has tests available. Then you’ll need to fill out a form and turn it in at your child’s school.

Some participating schools will give you a new test each week, which you can perform at home. It takes about 10 minutes.
