Together we can keep Virginia schools open and safe for students by proactively participating in on-site COVID-19 testing at our public, private and charter schools across the state.

Virginia Commonwealth University conducted a statewide poll in May 2021 to understand parents’ hesitations to sending children back to school. Over half of parents (56%) said conducting regular COVID-19 tests on teachers would increase their willingness to send their children back to school in the fall, while 44% said regular testing of students would increase their confidence.

With the assistance of federal funding, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) is offering optional, on-site COVID testing for all public, private and charter school students and educators administered by experienced health care professionals.

MAKO Medical is proud to partner with VDH and implement the department's new testing program. This program will operate throughout the 2021-2022 school year.

COVID-19 testing is easy. It's free. And it's proven to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
