COVID-19 At-Home Test Kit Distribution

At-Home Test Kit Distribution

Proactive testing can prevent exposures, outbreaks and unnecessary missed days for SFUSD staff and students. 

SFUSD is mobilizing quickly to coordinate the distribution of at-home test kits provided by the California Department of Public Health once they arrive, in addition to personal protective equipment (PPE) and cleaning supplies.

The District will be distributing at-home test kits to students at school sites with a flier that contains instructions for use. 

Please see the following schedule of targeted delivery dates from warehouse to school sites. Please note that the distribution at the school sites might occur on a different date and families will hear directly from their school when their child has received a kit to take home:

When to Use At-Home Tests

COVID-19 testing is not required. SFDPH recommends usage of at-home tests when:

  • Returning to schools if exhibiting symptoms
  • Return to school from isolation on or after 5 days, and 
  • Screen after the Martin Luther King Day and Lunar New Year holidays, even if you are not symptomatic
  • If your student gets sick with symptoms (like cough and fever), stay home and use your tests to see if it is COVID-19.
  • If your student is exposed to someone with COVID-19, stay home and use your tests on or after day 5. 

SFUSD will continue to offer self-swab test kits at every school site. These test results will be returned within 24 to 48 hours. 

If students or staff become symptomatic while on campus, or are identified as close contacts, all school sites have unmonitored self-swab Color kits that can be used and dropped off on the same day at any of the following: (1) any school site before 10 a.m., (2) any of the mobile testing sites, or (3) any central office drop-off locations from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

For those experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, please do not come into school. You may go to the Crocker-Amazon testing site

You can also access testing at locations throughout San Francisco, which includes your primary health care provider and community and public testing sites. 

For more information about COVID-19 testing, or to find a testing site near you, visit or call SFDPH’s COVID Resource Center at 628-652-2700.
