DPSCD Partners Offer Free COVID-19 testing

DPSCD will always prioritize the health and safety of our students, employees, and families. Beginning Friday, Nov. 20, 2020, through January 29, 2021, in partnership with Wayne State University and Henry Ford Health System, District families and staff can receive free COVID-19 testing.

No appointment is necessary to participate in this free testing. With new edicts from the state to prevent possible communal spread of the virus, the free testing provides an opportunity for District families and staff to ease your concerns on the cusp of the holiday season.

“As COVID rates have been increasing in the city and state, the importance of access to testing has also increased,” said Alycia Meriweather, DPSCD Deputy Superintendent, Partnerships and Innovation.  “We thank our partners at Wayne State University and Henry Ford Health System for working with us to provide COVID-19 testing opportunities to DPSCD families and staff.” 

The free COVID-19 testing will take place through mid-December at several District schools across the city.
