COVID-19 testing

Testing is available to all students and employees.

The City School District of Albany continues to conduct in-person COVID-19 saliva swab testing for all students and employees at six conveniently located district buildings throughout the city. There is little-to-no wait with results in 24-48 hours.

Pre-registration is required. Please use the link below to pre-register if you have not already done so. Appointments are not needed. If you are not pre-registered, we will not be able to test you and you will be asked to return when you’re registered.  If you need assistance registering, please contact your child’s school.

Please remember that for a COVID-19 saliva swab test you must wait at least one hour after brushing your teeth or using mouthwash before testing. Also, do not eat or drink anything 30 minutes before testing. This includes gum, mints, cough lozenges, etc.
