Covid testing will begin today [Monday] in Spokane’s public schools.

The district hopes eventually to institute regular surveillance testing for all students and staff members.

“Even if they’re not symptomatic, they don’t know of any exposures, they can test every week or every two weeks on a regular schedule. It’s just a way to pick out people, they test positive, even though they didn’t know they had it," said Becky Doughty, the district's director of health services.
