COVID-19 TESTING MANDATE FOR EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
The City of Fitchburg Board of Health hereby mandates all Fitchburg Public Schools students and staff participating in extracurricular activities, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated, be tested for COVID-19 on a weekly basis or as necessary to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Extra-curricular activities shall include any function where students and staff gather where there is a potential of the spread of COVID-19. Examples of extra-curricular activities are sporting events, plays, band, the 21st Century After School Program, and other activities where the potential for students and staff to gather in non-academic settings is present.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has partnered with CIC Health to provide free COVID-19 testing to students, teachers, and staff.
