COVID 19 News

FREE COVID-19 Testing

Our number 1 commitment is to keep our students, staff, and families safe and healthy and to keep students in school.  The COVID rates in our county are high and continue to climb. We are seeing this in our schools with many positive COVID-19 cases and many students/staff being tested by our District Nurse.  

To mitigate the testing burden, we are partnering with USAMedical who will be onsite at Maywood/DaVinci (outside the gym entrance):

Mondays 8 - 4 p.m.

Wednesdays noon - 4 p.m.

Fridays noon  4 p.m.

USAMedical uses the less invasive type of PCR tests and can provide parents results of their child’s test within 24 - 48 hours through text or email. This test can also be used for family members who are symptomatic or those who are traveling and need a negative COVID test within a 72-hour period.

Again, our goal in providing this testing is to keep our students and staff safe, our students in school, and our schools open.

We ask that you partner with us to help reduce the COVID-19 cases in our schools by following the link below and registering your student for testing. By registering your student, you are giving authorization for your student to be tested during the 2021-22 school year if and when the need arises.

Please know that USAMedical will not have access to your student’s school information, just the information you provide through the registration process which is the name and birthdate for identification purposes when sending the results.

Things to Note: 


  • Please use your student's first and last name, not yours.
  • Even though there is payment and insurance questions on the form, you can choose to leave those sections blank.  If you prefer that your insurance company be billed for the test, you can complete the section.
  • This is a free service to students and families of Corning Elementary School District.


Tehama County Public Health, Tehama County Department of Education. and all Tehama County Schools have spent the summer working together to ensure our classrooms are filled with laughter and learning as we approach a new school year.

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released the updated COVID-19 Public Health Guidance for TK-12 Schools in California on July 12, 2021. Based on current data, some restrictions are no longer required which will allow us to return to a more typical school day.

Here are some of the updated guidelines:

  • Face coverings are not required outdoors
  • Student cohorts will no longer be required
  • Physical distancing is no longer required
  • Modified quarantine rules

CDPH Guidance continues to mandate that all TK- 12 students and staff wear face coverings when indoors. This is not a district or even a county decision. Masks are required at all schools in the state of California, public or private. Districts and school boards do not have a choice about whether or not to enforce public health's guidance; we are required to do so. Our resources will be focused on safety and ensuring every student gets the best education and access to mental health services possible, as well as engaging students with gaps in learning due to COVID-19 disruption and challenges during the past school year.

All schools will continue to implement COVID-19 prevent ion measures and encourage everyone to take public health precautions and follow CDC and CDPH guidelines.
