Plattsburgh drive-up testing site targeted for CVES students, staff
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (WCAX) - A new testing site has opened in Clinton County for students and staff in the area.
The drive-up site at the Champlain Valley Educational Services satellite building on Rugar Street is designed to make testing more easily available and keep kids in school. If students or staff have a positive antigen test that is confirmed by a positive PCR test, they are required to begin a five-day quarantine.
“We are really trying to provide that resource to our component districts to be able to help our students and our staff in our schools to meet this testing requirement and help identify who is COVID positive and then everyone can take those safe precautions to ensure that schools and also their families are safe,” said CVES District Superintendent Mark Davey.
There were over 30 appointments scheduled for Friday. The site will run Monday through Friday and open up on some weekends by appointment only.
