Parents may contact (518) 828-3358 x.1251 to schedule these appointments when needed. This testing will still only be for staff/students of Columbia County schools who need a negative COVID test to return to school.
CCDOH is now offering COVID-19 testing for staff working in Columbia County schools and for students attending Columbia County schools who need a negative test to return to school. The primary focus of this testing will be students who were kept home by their parents due to illness and who have seen their symptoms resolve. However, any student who has been informed by their schools that they need to be tested is eligible. Please print, fill out the top half of the form, and bring it with you to the testing site.
Beginning Monday, January 24th, CCDOH will be at the AB Shaw Firehouse in Claverack on Mondays and Thursdays 9-10:45AM and at the Chatham Firehouse on Wednesdays 9-10:45AM
