BALTIMORE COUNTY, Md. — Due to low student and staff participation across the system, Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) was informed that they'll no longer be conducting optional COVID-19 tests.

CIAN Diagnostics, the external vendor, made the decision to end optional testing in BCPS. However, testing will still be available in health-suites to symptomatic students.

Those who still wish to participate in optional testing can use any of the free testing sites available by the Baltimore County Department of Health.
