CLARE – Local school officials concerned about the spread of COVID-19 when school resumes after Spring Break are encouraging travelers to take advantage of free local rapid testing.
The Clare-Gladwin Regional Education Service District (RESD) is hosting rapid antigen COVID-19 testing for any community members, particularly students and school staff, who may be vacationing during the break. The testing will be available Saturday, April 3, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the parking lot of the Clare-Gladwin Area School at 4041 E. Mannsiding Road in Clare. The event will take place rain or shine.
“The purpose of the testing event is to ensure people returning to school following spring break are not COVID-positive,” said CGRESD Superintendent Sheryl Presler. “This is a quick, efficient way to help in those efforts, and we encourage anybody who is traveling over the break to consider taking the rapid test and help keep our schools safe.”
Participants should pre-register for the event by visiting http://honumg.info/ClareGladwinRESD. Doing so, will take participants to an online form to be completed, signed electronically and submitted. Pre-registering will greatly speed up the testing process. Those who are unable to complete the electronic form will be assisted in registering at the site on the day of testing. Results will be sent to participants’ email address; the account will need to be validated with the person’s first and last name and date of birth.
