Voluntary COVID-19 testing for students and staff from St. Thomas of Villanova Catholic High School and Holy Cross, Sacred Heart, St. Joseph and Stella Maris Catholic Elementary Schools will be held on Saturday, May 1 from 9 am to 3 pm.


The testing location is Sandwich Secondary School at 7050 Malden Road in LaSalle.


This voluntary testing is being made available for students and staff who are not experiencing any COVID 19 symptoms and have not been directed to isolate due to a high risk exposure but would still like to be tested.


In order to limit lineups and crowding, we have created assigned time slots which are sorted alphabetically by surname. A letter explaining all of the details about the testing process was emailed to parents directly.


The testing is part of a community-wide approach, and all four school boards in the Windsor – Essex County area are working together to provide access to free, voluntary testing opportunities for in-person students, staff and children at schools and daycares within the community defined by the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit.


The other schools being invited to take part in the May 1 voluntary testing are Western Secondary School, General Amherst High School, Sandwich West Public School, LaSalle Public School, Prince Andrew Public School, Malden Central Public School, Amherstburg Public School, Anderdon Public School, École élémentaire catholique Mgr-Augustin-Caron, École élémentaire catholique St-Jean-Baptiste, and École élémentaire catholique Ste-Ursule.


Once school locations and dates have been determined for future voluntary testing opportunities families in those communities will be notified by their school board.
