COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test Expiration Extension
The California Department of Public Health has extended the shelf life of certain COVID-19 rapid antigen tests past their printed expiration dates. This includes iHealth and Flowflex rapid antigen tests which may now be used past the expiration date found on the box so long as the test's control line appears correctly after taking the test based on testing instructions. Additional information can be found in the following document provided on the CDPH website:
Additional Local Free Testing Available
In addition to the limited free testing, which is available for our students and staff, not for parents and families, L.A. County is also providing COVID-19 testing free of charge. Drive-through or walk-up testing sites are available and appointments are not always needed. Visit lacounty.gov/testing or call 2-1-1 to find a location and learn more. Many local pharmacies are also offering free testing. At-home collection kits and tests are available by prescription or over the counter in a pharmacy or retail store. Visit the CDC self-testing website to learn more.
In addition to the free vaccination clinics held by Arcadia Unified, L.A. County continues to offer vaccines at many different sites across the county to make it as easy as possible for eligible L.A. County residents to get vaccinated. Anyone 12 and older living or working in L.A. County can get vaccinated against COVID-19. Vaccinations are always free.
To find a vaccination site near you, make an appointment at vaccination sites, and much more, visit www.VaccinateLACounty.com. If you don’t have internet access, can’t use a computer, or you’re over 65, you can call 1-833-540-0473 for help finding an appointment, connecting to free transportation to and from a vaccination site, or scheduling a home visit if you are homebound. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health says fully vaccinated people are four times less likely to get infected with COVID-19 and 14 times less likely to be hospitalized.
