GREENWOOD, S.C. (WSPA) – Greenwood School District 50 announced a free drive-through COVID-19 testing for students and staff beginning Monday.

The school district partnered with SCDHEC and MAKO Medical Laboratories.

Drive-through testing will be available to District 50 students and staff only at Genesis Education Center (in front of gym) on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. 

Superintendent Steve Glenn said, “I would encourage all of our students and staff to take advantage of this. Our goal is to lessen the amount of lost time that students and staff may experience from class or our schools due to COVID-19 isolations or quarantines. This will serve as another excellent tool in keeping our students and staff healthy and safe throughout the school year.”
