LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- With classes set to begin in two days, the Los Angeles Unified School District on Sunday hosted COVID-19 testing sites at multiple locations in an effort to help students meet the requirement of logging a negative test before returning to campuses.

The district is requiring all students and staff to be tested ahead of the re-start of classes. District staff are expected back on campuses Monday, with the start of classes pushed back to Tuesday.The testing requirement appears to be paying dividends, with the baseline testing revealing a large number of infections. Interim Superintendent Megan Reilly told reporters during a distribution event at Johnnie Cochran Middle School that the district is reporting a roughly 13% positivity rate thus far, well above the rate from late last year.

The district is requiring all students and staff to be tested ahead of the re-start of classes. District staff are expected back on campuses Monday, with the start of classes pushed back to Tuesday. The testing requirement appears to be paying dividends, with the baseline testing revealing a large number of infections. Health care facilities are finding themselves increasingly short-staffed, in part because of COVID infections among health care workers. Interim Superintendent Megan Reilly told reporters during a distribution event at Johnnie Cochran Middle School that the district is reporting a roughly 13% positivity rate thus far, well above the rate from late last year. While elevated, that rate is still below the county as a whole. “Tenemos la esperanza de que volveremos a la normalidad el lunes y continuaremos durante el resto del semestre de primavera”.

As of Thursday, the county's overall testing-positivity rate was about 22%. The state is requiring all health care workers in the state to receive a booster dose of vaccine by Feb. District officials mandated the testing ahead of spring classes to identify students and staff who may have picked up infections over the winter break -- possibly through family holiday gatherings. To assist in the testing effort, the district on Friday began distributing take-home tests to students at dozens of its Grab & Go food distribution sites. The distribution effort continued through Saturday. “Keeping health care workers safe is critical to maintaining functionality across our health care facilities when surges lead to staffing shortages and rising rates of hospitalizations,” county Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said in a statement Friday. .
