Testing is an important strategy to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our schools. SFUSD is providing free COVID testing with Color for SFUSD students and staff.  

In order to streamline access to testing for their SFUSD students, families are strongly encouraged to set up an account for their child today. 

Students 14 years and older can create their own accounts. Students and staff must be registered for a Color self-swab testing account to access the self-swab testing service available at every SFUSD school site.

Watch videos with multilingual subtitles to learn how to register for a Color self-swab testing account and activate your self-swab test kit:
