Voluntary and Free COVID Testing for Lexington 1 Students

Dear Lexington District One Staff and Families:

We partnered with the Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) to offer voluntary and free COVID-19 testing to Lexington District One staff and students who are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or want to be tested so they may return to work or school from quarantine early. 

Beginning Monday, Nov. 29, 2021, three drive-through testing sites in our school district will operate from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the following locations. 

Rosenwald Community Learning Center
420 Hendrix Street
Lexington, SC 29072

Former Gilbert Elementary School (Old Gilbert High School)
314 Main Street
Gilbert, SC 29054

Former Pelion Middle School
758 Magnolia Street
Pelion, SC 29123

We chose these sites to best serve all communities throughout our district, while not causing a disruption to learning.

The clinics give our staff and families the voluntary opportunity to test for free if they are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or if they want to return to work or school from quarantine early. 

To visit a clinic and get tested, staff/parents/guardians must use the link below to create an account and sign up.

After you create an account, no appointment is needed. Just drive through and get tested. 

Thanks.
