OUSD COVID-19 Testing Update

In response to the recent increases in COVID-19 cases, and the emergence of new variants, OUSD will be making weekly COVID-19 testing available to all students, to help protect the health of the students, staff and the community.

Testing will be conducted by Citadel Diagnostics, which has been providing world-class COVID-19 testing to school districts across southern California. Industry experts with over 40 years of molecular diagnostics expertise, Citadel Diagnostics’ fast turnaround times deliver quick results on your digital devices, by email, text, or an easy-to-use online platform.

Due to the uptick in COVID-19 cases locally, we encourage participation in this COVID-19 testing program, which will begin June 13, 2022, at Oceanside schools. For student(s) to participate in the weekly testing, pre-registration is required in advance. 

We thank you for considering this testing program and helping to keep students and the community as safe as possible.

Testing will still be available to the community Monday-Friday 8:30AM-4:30PM at Oceanside High School and El Camino High School.

**Insurance is required to test. There are no out of pocket costs for insured individuals. **
