The Danbury School District will now be part of a pilot program testing students and staff for coronavirus. Rapid tests will be available at the school-based health centers for students and staff with symptoms. The program will be in place at the high school and Broadview and Rogers Park middle schools. The BinaxNOW rapid antigen test program is being implemented by the state as part of a pilot program to avoid having to close entire school buildings when there's suspected COVID-19 cases. This is for students or staff who develop symptoms while in the building, but families are asked to not send their children to school if they're exhibiting symptoms. While Danbury is on distance learning, parents can make an appointment for a drive thru test for their child.
