State agencies encourage Maryland school systems to set up COVID-19 testing in the fall

July 21, 2021

Maryland’s health and education departments are encouraging schools to expand COVID-19 testing programs in the fall and offering to help pay — a total of $182 million from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The money would fund routine testing in public and private schools to catch coronavirus cases as early as possible. “We are encouraging them to sign up to participate in this program,” said Jon Weinstein, director of the Maryland COVID-19 Recovery Program.
