Letter: State announces staff testing protocolsSeptember 3, 2021
Dear Oswego CSD Community,
On yesterday, Sept. 2, 2021, New York State released new guidance for the reopening of schools this fall. Due to increased challenges and urgency for controlling the spread of COVID-19 and because much of the student population are not yet eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination, part of the new requirements are as follows:
- Weekly screening for staff: Fully vaccinated individuals may opt-out of the mandatory weekly screening testing upon providing vaccination documentation.
Diagnostic testing will continue to be required for staff and students who are symptomatic or asymptomatic following exposure to COVID-19 regardless of vaccination status.
In the near future we will be in touch with the community to provide additional information.
Yours in Education,
Mathis Calvin III, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
