COVID-19 Testing at IDEA
Beginning in February 2021, IDEA has partnered with Curative to offer free, accessible COVID-19 testing to anyone in the IDEA community.
Curative testing takes place in a safe kiosk where individuals administer the test to themselves with a mouth swab. Testing is available Monday through Friday from 9 am to 3 pm. IDEA also offers free antigen (rapid) testing at the school for all staff and scholars. Antigen testing provides a more effective indication of how contagious someone is and therefore is required of all scholars and staff returning from exposure or quarantine, in addition to PCR test results.
Appointments are available through Curative's website
. Test results are typically available within 24-48 hours. Tests are free, whether or not an individual has health insurance.
