The protocols LFSF will implement on the onset of symptoms, potential exposure to and/or close contact with an individual testing positive for COVID-19 in a classroom setting, are based on various scenarios. We are listing below the various scenarios, as well as the actions that the school will implement and the communication that may be sent out in each one of these situations.
LFSF has contracted the services of a testing company to coordinate regular testing opportunities for our employees and wider community. It utilizes Quidel Lyra® SARS-CoV-2 Assay, a real-time RT-PCR assay intended for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2 in nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal swab specimens from patients suspected of COVID-19.
The contracting firm also offers antibody testing and use the Abbott Diagnostic SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) IgG antibody test method. The test method is performing at specificity 99.6% or sensitivity 100%.
Viral & Antibody testing, results in 72 hours or less.
A Baseline testing opportunity will be hosted on our Sausalito Campus before in person instruction commences. Testing will take place outdoors and respecting physical distancing protocols. All employees are required to baseline test before school begins.
LFSF will then host bi-monthly testing opportunities to test 50% of employees and the wider LFSF community on our campuses, unless circumstances require additional testing.
