The Erie County Department of Health is partnering with local school districts to offer surveillance and proximal testing as a voluntary program.
Surveillance testing is the random 10% weekly test of individuals that volunteer. Proximal testing is the testing of individuals who do not meet close contact criteria but were exposed to COVID-19 at school.
To take advantage of these opportunities, individuals must go to the Erie County Department of Health website (link provided below) and complete two consent forms. The consent forms are located in the middle of the page. Both forms must be completed because one is collection while the other is for testing the sample.
