SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – State-provided COVID take-home test kits are being distributed this week in the San Francisco Unified School District.
However, getting tested at an SFUSD site can still be a challenge for some parents and teachers who are desperate to find out if it is safe for them to return to school.
“We can say that testing is available as an idea but what we are hearing on the ground is that parents are literally having to drive across town to find tests. It’s an extreme hardship on families who don’t have transportation. We need to help parents make it easy for them,” Board of Education commissioner, Alison Collins, said.
