Consent Information for AISD COVID Rapid Test at Hub Locations

Starting Nov. 1, students and staff will soon have access to a free rapid antigen testing program through a new partnership with Concentric by Ginkgo

 

Why it matters: Research shows that the more people get tested, the safer everyone is from the spread of COVID-19. 

 

You’ll be able to access rapid antigen or PCR tests (when available) at 11 sites across Austin. 

  • Students and staff can get a test at will for any reason, whether you’ve been exposed or are just looking for peace of mind.
  • Sites include: Travis, Northeast  Akins, Norman-Sims, Pillow, Kiker, Eastside, Cunningham, Navarro, Blazier, McCallum .
  • Testing will run 8 a.m. -2 p.m. Monday-Friday.
  • Testing at Northeast is one of the portables in the back of the school. Studnets who are getting tested can report directly to the portable. 

 

Yes, but: Only students with completed consent forms can get a test. 

  • This is an opt-in program, so no one will participate if they don’t want to.

Completing the consent form takes about five minutes on a computer or smartphone.
