Due to changes in federal funding, there will be changes to our weekly WeCare COVID-19 Testing program. 

As of March 22, 2022, the federal government no longer covers the cost of COVID-19 testing for people without insurance. As a result, our vendor will only test people who have provided their insurance information for billing.

If you provided your insurance information on your previous consent form, you don’t have to do anything. If you have not provided your insurance information, please complete and return a new consent form to your school. You must provide your child’s insurance information, so One Love Services can bill the insurance company directly.

We will not have WeCare COVID-19 testing next week. Testing will resume on Monday, April 4, 2022.

As a reminder, the WeCare weekly testing is provided at no cost to you or Warren County Schools.

Why your child should get tested

The weekly WeCare testing will help identify students and staff who have COVID-19, but don’t know it because they don’t have any symptoms. You can still get the virus even if you're vaccinated, so we encourage everyone to participate in the weekly testing. Anyone who tests positive will be required to stay home so they don't spread the virus at school. Participating in the weekly testing will also allow you to better protect your family and friends, by knowing if your child has COVID-19. 

We need your help to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our schools. If our staff are sick and can't come to work, we don't have enough adults to properly supervise students, so we have to close the school. Participating in the weekly WeCare COVID-19 Testing helps us limit the spread of the virus to keep our students and staff healthy and our schools open.

Thank you for your cooperation and support of Warren County Schools.
