Each week all faculty, staff, and pupils will continue to participate in on-campus PCR testing using nasal tests administered by CoVerify and processed at the FlowHealth labs, until further notice.
A weekly update will be provided in the WISH Wise Weekly each week with information on current positive cases on each campus. Given the surge in cases, a daily case rate will be provided also. Each week, we will also provide a positivity percentage rate, once the entire batch of tests has been processed.
Some WISH community members have reported that the walk-up clinics which are always available to WISH faculty and students still provide a quick turnaround for processing tests. If you need a COVID-19 PCR test for your child, you can go to the walk-up clinics.

Due to the LACDPH guidelines, we can accept antigen tests. You may have noticed the antigen stations set up on each campus for easy access in the mornings. Recently, we have started administering antigen tests, which provide immediate information as to whether pupils and faculty members who are symptomatic, identified as close contacts, or returning from quarantine are positive for COVID-19 and therefore contagious.
Antigen testing will be allowed and utilized in a variety of ways throughout the spring semester for individuals who:
1. are identified as a close contact, in order to remain on campus
2. received a positive PCR test and have quarantined for five days and now need to return to campus safely
3. missed our COVID PCR testing day and need to return to campus
