Test to Stay

Unvaccinated and partially vaccinated students exposed to COVID can take a test to stay at school.

Bloomfield Schools is doing all it can to keep students safe and in school even as the number of COVID cases in New Mexico remains high.

The Test to Stay program allows unvaccinated and partially vaccinated students exposed to COVID-19 to stay at school as long as they test negative in the days that follow. Students can also ride the bus, participate in extracurricular activities including athletics, and attend before- and after-school programs.

Outside of school and school-related activities, students would still be expected to quarantine.  

The Test to Stay program is only available to students exposed at school or school-related activities. Employees exposed to the virus at work also are eligible. 

Eligible students whose families have opted into the Test to Stay program must take a rapid, shallow, nasal swab test at their school in the days following exposure to COVID-19. As long as they test negative, they can stay at school.

The tests are free for families. The New Mexico Department of Health is using federal funding to cover costs.
