COVID-19 Testing for Students and Staff

Dear IUSD Community,

As part of the Irvine Unified School District’s ongoing effort to prevent and limit the spread of COVID-19 in our schools and facilities, the District in partnership with LivingFit Nation Corporate Wellness will offer, at no cost to participants, COVID-19 testing for students and IUSD employees and their dependents. This partnership is in addition to IUSD’s free testing for staff, which began prior to the start of in-person instruction in September 2020. Staff may continue to use the testing program established through Sand Canyon Urgent Care for employees only or they may use these clinics for themselves and their dependents.

The following COVID-19 testing clinics will be held each Monday for the next five weeks, starting Monday, January 25. Each of the District’s six high schools will rotate hosting the clinics – see dates, times, and locations below. 

Monday, February 22, 2021 (7 a.m. – 4 p.m.)*Click on the link for details.
