Voluntary and Free Flu and COVID-19 Testing

Dear Lexington District One Families:

We partnered with the Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) to offer voluntary and free flu and COVID-19 testing to Lexington District One students.

Beginning Monday, Dec. 5, 2022, three drive-through testing sites in our school district will operate from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the following locations:

Rosenwald Community Learning Center
420 Hendrix Street
Lexington, SC 29072

Former Gilbert Elementary School (Old Gilbert High School)
314 Main Street
Gilbert, SC 29054

Former Pelion Middle School
758 Magnolia Street
Pelion, SC 29123

We chose these sites to best serve all communities throughout our district, while not causing a disruption to learning.

The clinics give our families the voluntary opportunity to test for free if their student is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or flu. The combination test allows for a single nasal swab to be used to test for COVID-19, Flu A, and Flu B.

To visit a clinic and get tested, parents/guardians must use the link below to create an account and sign up.
