Who Can Test

ACPS testing clinics are open to all ACPS employees, with or without symptoms, regardless of vaccination status.

Testing is available to any employee who is experiencing symptoms, has been identified as a close contact, or simply wants peace of mind.

Clinic Operations During Inclement Weather

During inclement weather, ACPS testing clinics may be open on days when schools are closed. The decision to open during inclement weather will be based on road conditions, the ability of testing staff to travel safely, power outages, and other factors. Any changes to the regular testing schedule will be announced on this web page.

General Testing Information

ACPS has partnered with GENETWORx, a leader in precision COVID-19 testing, to offer multiple testing clinics for employees each week.

Appointments may be scheduled through the Aura Sequential Test Scheduling system, powered by GENETWORx. Employees must create an account before registering for their first appointment.

Processing of COVID-19 tests occurs at the GENETWORx lab in Richmond. Employees can access their test results through the Aura app or website.

For help with registration or using the Aura app, see GENETWORx/Aura Frequently Asked Questions.

ACPS respects the medical privacy of every employee. We will report aggregate vaccination and testing percentages as a matter of public information, but we will not share any individual's information.

Testing Instructions for Symptomatic Employees

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and/or you have been exposed to a person with COVID-19, you may get tested at any ACPS testing clinic, regardless of your vaccination status. Symptomatic employees must use drive-up testing rather than walk-in testing, and pre-registration is preferred.

To register in advance, you must create an account in the Aura Sequential Test Scheduling system. Once you have created an account, you can register for an appointment location and time.

Upon arrival at the testing site, call the clinic phone number for assistance (434-972-1621). A GENETWORx staff member will walk out to your car to administer your test. Do not enter the building if you are symptomatic.

Other Testing Options

ACPS testing clinics are open to all ACPS employees, with or without symptoms, regardless of vaccination status; however, other testing options exist in our community.
