COVID Testing Signage

UPDATE: Effective February 3, 2022, everything you need to know about COVID-19 testing for employees is now on our website at

Important Announcement: All ACPS-sponsored COVID-19 testing sites will be closed on Monday, January 17, in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Testing sites will resume their normal schedule on Tuesday, January 18.

Keep reading for more COVID-19 testing updates, including a new testing procedure for employees who are symptomatic, testing site operations during inclement weather, and other options for local testing. You’ll also find a copy of the regular testing schedule for your convenience.

Symptomatic Testing

Employees who are symptomatic and/or have been exposed to a person with COVID-19 must use drive-up testing rather than walk-in testing. Phone numbers for each testing location have been added to the Regular Testing Schedule (below) and are posted on the door of each site. Upon arrival at the testing site, please call the clinic phone number for assistance. Do not enter the building if you are symptomatic. A GENETWORx staff member will walk out to your car to administer your test.

NEW! Symptomatic employees should register in advance whenever possible. (Pre-registration is preferred, but not required.) Please follow these steps to pre-register: 

  1. Click here to create an account in the Aura/GENETWORx test scheduling system (using Chrome or Safari).
  2. Next, register for an appointment location and time.
  3. As a reminder, when you arrive at the testing site, call the clinic phone number for assistance; do not enter the building if you are symptomatic.
  4. Your results will be posted in the Aura app and website.

Inclement Weather Plans

During inclement weather, our GENETWORx testing sites may be open on days when schools are closed. Given the recent surge of COVID-19 cases, we will do our best to open our testing clinics for symptomatic/exposed testing as well as regular weekly testing. The decision to open during inclement weather will be based on road conditions, the ability of testing staff to travel safely, power outages, and other factors. Please keep an eye on your email address for updates on the status of testing sites during inclement weather.

Other Testing Options

As a reminder: All employees who are required to participate in weekly testing must use our ACPS/GENETWORx sites for testing.
