CDC endorses COVID-19 testing protocol already in use in Blue Valley — here’s how it works

Blue Valley uses the "Test to Stay" protocol, in which symptomatic students and other students who have been exposed to a positive COVID-19 cases can get tested for seven straight days and remain in school as long as they test negative. File photo.

The CDC last week endorsed “Test to Stay,” a COVID-19 testing protocol in use in school districts across the U.S. aimed at keeping kids in school and avoiding at-home quarantines.

The Blue Valley School District adopted the “Test to Stay” program earlier this fall.
