News brief on 4/21/21 “Community thru Covid”
This survey about asymptomatic testing in DCPS schools — not affiliated with DCPS but organized by a community member — asks staff and those with students in DCPS schools to share some basics about how the 10% randomized testing is working in practice. Here is the direct link to the short, anonymous survey; or find it via @DCPSCovidCases on Twitter.
If DCPS responds to our query about delays in notifying school communities of positive cases, that response will be added.
