Free COVID-19 Testing

Greenwood School District 50 recently announced a partnership with SCDHEC and Mako Medical Laboratories to offer free COVID-19 testing to students and staff beginning Monday, October 11th. Drive-through testing will be available to District 50 students and staff only at Genesis Education Center (in front of gym) Monday-Friday, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.


“If a student or staff member is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or needing a negative PCR test to return to school, they will now have the ability to utilize this free drive-through testing site,” Communications Director Johnathan L. Graves stated. “This testing site is exclusively for District 50 students and staff and MAKO has stated that test results will be ready within 24 hours.” 


Superintendent Steve Glenn said, “I would encourage all of our students and staff to take advantage of this. Our goal is to lessen the amount of lost time that students and staff may experience from class or our schools due to COVID-19 isolations or quarantines. This will serve as another excellent tool in keeping our students and staff healthy and safe throughout the school year.”
