Free Drive Through COVID testing for GCS Employees and Students
To better serve our employees and students, GCS has partnered with DHEC and MAKO Medical Laboratories to provide FREE COVID-19 drive-through testing at three sites across the county (Northside Park, MT Anderson, and Fountain Inn High School). These testing sites are restricted for use by GCS employees and students only. While it may be disappointing that spouses, college-age children, parents, and extended family cannot access this resource, restricting it helps ensure a quick turnaround (usually within 24 hours) and a streamlined process for you and our students. Unlike last year’s testing clinics provided in partnership with Prisma Health, you do not need to make an appointment, obtain a doctor’s order, or present your insurance card to get tested. Just show up, show your GCS I.D. (subs/virtual show pay stub), complete a consent form, and await results. These sites only conduct PCR testing, which is considered the most accurate type of test and is the only one that can be used to secure an early return from quarantine (Day 8 instead of Day 11). The collection involves an interior nasal swab, but not a deep nasal swab.
Free At-Home COVID-19 Tests - Every home in the U.S. is eligible to order and receive 4 free at-home COVID-19 tests. They can be ordered through COVIDtests.gov
Early Releaser form Quarantine
Quarantined students will soon be able to return to school three days earlier if they are symptom free and follow DHEC guidelines for an early release from quarantine. To qualify, students must receive a negative result on a COVID-19 PCR test collected no sooner than day 5 of the quarantine period. As soon as the negative PCR test result has been received, that result should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the student’s name, school, and, if available, the student i.d. number. As quickly as possible, our staff will respond via email with a revised date of return, which cannot be before day 8. Your child will not be allowed back in school until the GCS Medical staff has validated the test results and provided an updated return date. Remember that for early return, only a PCR test is accepted, not a rapid antigen or home test. This option is not available to students in isolation due to a positive COVID test it is only for those who are on quarantine and have no symptoms of COVID-19. Thank
you for helping us return students from DHEC required quarantines as quickly as possible. An interactive map showing DHEC approved testing locations is available at scdhec.gov/covid19/covid-19-testing-locations.
