The testing involves individuals who are participating in extracurricular activities. This includes winter sports, band, cheer, drill, choir, debate, and theater.

Testing teams are comprised of administrators, nurses, and other school personnel from each of our four main high schools. The teams are administering the BinaxNOW COVID-19 rapid test, which provides results within 15 minutes.

The third round of testing was conducted on Monday, January 4, 2021. Here are the results:

Covid Testing Locations

Parents and Staff,

Beginning January 4 through the end of February, the Utah Department of Health is offering free COVID-19 rapid antigen testing in communities across the state. Some of the mobile testing will be done in school facilities.

Areas are chosen based on high positivity rates, lower numbers of tests conducted, untreated wastewater sampling, and other surveillance data.

Anyone can get tested at these free testing clinics, even if they do not have symptoms of COVID-19. Anyone who wants to be tested can register online. However, we also encourage anyone who might have any symptoms, even mild ones, to come and get tested. Online registration is encouraged to cut down on any potential delays at the testing site. If you can’t register online, you will be able to register at the site. Identification is required.

The goal of these testing clinics is to more quickly identify people who are currently infectious with COVID-19, including those who may not even know they are infected because they don’t have symptoms. Identifying these individuals will help slow the spread of infection in the community.

Test results will be emailed to those tested within 30-60 minutes after being tested.

Rapid antigen tests are less sensitive than PCR tests. Antigen tests work best when someone has symptoms of COVID-19 or when a person has high amounts of virus in their body. If an individual has symptoms and tests negative on the rapid antigen test or an individual doesn’t have symptoms and tests positive on the rapid antigen test, they will be referred for a follow up, confirmation PCR test.

Testing teams will consist of Utah Department of Health staff, deployed National Guard members, and TestUtah contracted teams.

Covid News Update

Modifications to current health guidelines were announced this morning by the governor and the Utah Department of Health. These guidelines go into effect on January 4, 2021, when we return from winter break. In summary:

  • The current public health orders will be extended through January, 21, 2021. This includes the mask mandate.

  • In-school exposures. If an individual is exposed to someone with COVID-19 in the school environment, and both individuals are wearing masks during the period of exposure, the person exposed is no longer required to quarantine. Contract tracing will still be conducted. Parents will need to monitor their students for symptoms for the 14 days following an exposure, and keep them home if they are sick. If it can't be verified that both individuals were wearing masks, then the person exposed will need to follow current quarantine procedures.

  • Teachers are able to get tested on a weekly basis upon request, or they can elect to be tested as part of "Test to Play." 

  • The governor indicated that vaccinations for teachers should be available by mid-January. There is a tentative schedule on the state's website.

  • The case threshold for closing has been modified for schools with over 1500 students. The new threshold is now 1% of the student population, instead of 15 cases. For example, the threshold for Fremont will move to 20 cases, Roy 18 cases and Weber 20 cases. All other schools will remain at 15 cases.

  • The "rule of three" (Three individuals testing positive in the same classroom within a two-week period) will only apply to elementary schools. Classes in secondary will no longer be quarantined when there are three or more cases in one classroom.

  • "Test to Stay." When the case threshold is met, a school has the option of moving online for 10 days, or testing all of its students. Students who test negative will be allowed to continue with in-person instruction. Students who test positive or don't test, will move to virtual learning for 10 days. Positive cases identified in this testing will not count toward the threshold to close.

  • Targeted testing in certain communities will be available after the holidays.

  • "Test to Play" will remain in effect. About 12,000 tests have been administered throughout the state with a positivity rate of 1.6%

Covid-19 Testing

Press Release

"COVID-19 Testing"

December 11, 2020

Following the mandates outlined in the State Public Health issued on December 8, 2020, Weber School District began testing students and staff for COVID-19 this week. The testing involves individuals who are participating in extracurricular activities. This includes winter sports, band, cheer, drill, choir, and theater.

Testing teams, which include administrators, nurses, and other school personnel, were organized at each of our four main high schools. The teams are administering the BinaxNOW COVID-19 rapid test that provides results within 15 minutes.

Testing was conducted at Bonneville High School and Fremont High School on Thursday, December 10, 2020. Testing took place today (December 11, 2020) at Roy High School and Weber High School. In order to protect privacy, the district does not release specific information about individuals who test positive, or information that may lead to person being identified. Below are the test results:

The 13 positive cases at Bonneville were spread across multiple groups. The school has quarantined the wrestling team after multiple individuals associated with the team tested positive. Bonneville entered a period of soft closure on Tuesday, December 8, after an outbreak of COVID-19 occurred at the school. After Thursday’s testing, there are 35 active cases of COVID-19 at the school. In-person instruction is scheduled to resume on Monday, January 4, 2021.

The three positive tests at Fremont were all associated with individuals who had previously tested positive and had been cleared to return to school. Fremont recently returned from soft closure on December 3, after being online for a period of two weeks. Currently, there are seven active cases at the school after returning from soft closure.

Out of 245 individuals tested at Roy High, only two tested positive. Roy High returned from its second soft closure on Monday, December 7. Currently, there are two active cases at the school.

180 individuals were tested at Weber High, resulting in two positive cases. The wrestling team has been quarantined for two weeks. Weber High has been experiencing a high number of cases over the past week or so. This afternoon, they surpassed the threshold of 15 positive cases within a 14-day period. Currently, there are 19 active cases and the school will transition online for two weeks beginning Monday, December 14.  In-person instruction is scheduled to resume on Monday, January 4, 2021.

Testing of individuals this week for participation in extracurricular activities did not have a significant impact on the overall case counts at each high school, and did not affect the decision to close any schools. The overall positivity rate from the testing was just 1.8%

Attached are some photos of the testing that was conducted at Bonneville. You have permission to use these photos. In the photo of the student being testing, please reference to the following information: "Jordan Citte, a senior at Bonneville High School, is tested for COVID-19 by Lisa Phelps, the head nurse at the school."

Weber School District will continue to test students and staff every two weeks according to state guidelines.
