Keep Kids In
Bloom’s K-12 COVID-19 screening program helps schools stay open and in-person with on-site, customized testing services.
Bloom’s contract with the State of Texas for K-12 COVID-19 testing has been extended for the 2022 – 2023 school year.
The Best Defense Against School Closures
Students, parents, guardians and teachers have endured enough disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Weekly, non-invasive, accurate testing is our best defense to keep kids in their classrooms, sports, clubs and other school activities.
On-Site Collection by Professionals
Bloom brings professional staff to each school, who are trained in the most effective, accurate, comfortable test sample collection techniques. This approach relieves the burden many testing programs put on teachers and faculty. Because the last thing teachers or school nurses need is to add COVID-19 sample collection duties to their days!
Fast, Accurate Testing to Stop the Spread
Many people with COVID-19, especially children and teens, don’t have symptoms but can still spread the virus. Regular testing is an effective, non-disruptive way to help keep schools open by finding infections before they can spread. And when you’re trying to find and stop a virus, speed and accuracy are critical! That’s why Bloom’s end-to-end screening program utilizes gold-standard PCR tests and turns results in 24 hours.
How it Works
Bloom’s standard K-12 COVID-19 testing solution starts with our dedicated on-site sample collection team of seasoned staff, who provide comfortable, flexible testing options to serve all ages and needs. Test samples are then transported by Bloom to a nearby Bloom lab. We own and operate our own labs, increasing quality control and turnaround time. Our approach provides enhanced reliability, transparency, communication, HIPAA-compliant reporting and accountability.
