As per the strong recommendation of the New York State Education Department, Harborfields will comply with CDC guidance and not conduct COVID-19 testing or require testing or antibody testing of students or staff members. Harborfields recommends that students and staff should seek the advice of their healthcare provider or Suffolk County Department of Health regarding the decision of whether a test needs to be conducted.

Harborfields will follow CDC Interim Considerations for K-12 School Administrators for SARS-CoV-2 Testing Schools to identify who in the community is responsible for referring, sourcing, and administering testing (e.g., local health department testing site, physician offices, and hospital system) particularly in the event that large-scale testing at the school is needed.
If an individual screens positive to any question on the Daily Health Screening for COVID-19 exposure or symptoms, they should contact their health care professional for further evaluation and COVID-19 test.
