Re:  Covid-19 Testing

Dear Parents and Staff:

                The Marquand-Zion R-VI School nurse is able to test students and staff that are symptomatic of the SARS Covid-19 virus.  Please see below for the list of known symptoms.  If a child or staff member becomes symptomatic and wants to be tested the following are the proper procedures:

  1.  If you are symptomatic, do not enter any of the buildings.
  2. Call one of the building administrators or nurse to set an appointment
  3. Wait in your vehicle in the lane between the gym and the ball field
  4. The nurse or designee will come to your vehicle when the testing room is ready
  5. Please wear your mask in the building and go straight to the concession stand
  6. Remain seated in the concession stand during the testing process
  7. The nurse will let you know your results and give you directions
  8. If positive, you will be instructed to return to your vehicle with the least amount of contact and the Madison County Health Department will contact you with isolation and quarantine details.
  9. If negative, the nurse will discuss the symptoms and when it is best to return to class.
