Please note that all testing over the winter holiday weeks will take place at Albemarle High School, located at 2775 Hydraulic Road in Charlottesville. The testing clinic (434-972-1622) is located inside the athletics lobby vestibule; enter at the rear bus loop.

As a reminder, if you are working in person any day during either week (even if only one day in person), you will need to test that week. This requirement applies to employees who indicated on the Staff Vaccination Status Form that they are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, and those who declined to identify their vaccination status. If you are not working or are exclusively teleworking, you do not need to test that week.

Symptomatic Testing

We have new phone numbers for employees to use when symptomatic and arriving to test at indoor sites. Please do not go into the building if you are symptomatic. Instead, park in the parking lot and call the phone number for that location. These numbers will also be posted on the door of each site.

Below is the regular testing schedule (non-holiday schedule), including phone numbers:
