Ohio Launches COVID-19 Screening Program for K-12 Students and Staff

A new K-12 screening pilot, initiated by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and administered by Thermo Fisher Scientific and Color Health, will provide testing to students, teachers and staff for COVID-19 on a weekly basis to help ensure safer in-person learning.

The ReadyCheckGo testing program is now underway at the LEAP Academy in Cincinnati and the Ohio School for the Deaf and Ohio School for the Blind, both in Columbus. The first round of testing began today and continues through the end of the school year. Ohio is the first state to participate in this new nationwide testing program.
