Coronado High School has started a free, rapid antigen testing service for students and staff who will be returning to school in the upcoming weeks. There are three types of testing: antigen, viral, and antibody testing. The employed antigen testing tests for an active infection, delivering same-day results. Viral testing tests for an active infection as well, however there is notification after 3-4 business days. The last type of testing is for those who have been previously infected, giving same day results. It is important to note that in any type of test taken, results might not always be 100% accurate – keep on social distancing and wearing a mask, you are keeping yourself and others safe.
