Universal testing not expected before fall classes

Kewaunee County Public Health Director Cindy Kinnard is not expecting a universal testing regime for students before school begins in the fall. Department of Public Instruction guidance last week left the decision of whether kids should return to the classroom up to individual districts. Not having complete information will be a factor in that determination. Kinnard says she does not expect a children’s version of the test anytime soon.


Vaccinations are taken care of before the school year begins. A test for COVID-19 infection could potentially be administered at school. The test involves extending a swab into the upper nasal passage for at least 15 seconds, an uncomfortable experience for most adults.
