Staff - Antigen Testing
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, (DESE) has been organizing the dissemination of the Antigen Tests and Camdenton R-III Schools has been approved to receive and administer them to staff members who are experiencing symptoms and request to be tested. The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has approved nursing staff in the Camdenton Schools to administer these tests only to staff members who request it.
As we continue to fight COVID-19 in our school district, these rapid tests will be another way for school staff to proactively reduce the spread of the virus. It is important to note that these rapid Antigen tests WILL NOT be required and will only be administered to a staff member when requested by the staff member through verbal and written consent.
