COVID-19 Testing Resources

Benicia Unified has home antigen tests available upon request in each school office. 

If a student or staff member has been exposed, they should take the home test on day  3-5 after exposure or immediately if symptoms develop. 

In the event of cluster cases in classrooms, test kits will be distributed to students in the classrooms with outbreaks. 

Students and staff who become ill during the school day can request a test kit to take home to rule out covid.

CDPH has determined home antigen tests are a reliable effect mitigation strategy for identifying covid infections.  

Benicia Unified will also continue to provide on site testing as needed through our BinaxNow test program. If onsite testing is going to be done for your students’ class, parents will receive information about testing in parentsquare with instructions on completing the  online permission slip from primary health.
