Cincinnati Public Schools will offer free COVID-19 testing for CPS employees and families throughout July and August.

As 2 p.m. July 12, Hamilton County reported more than 6,000 confirmed COVID cases which has resulted in over 700 hospitalizations and more than 100 deaths. Butler County also reported more than 1,000 confirmed cases, over 200 hospitalizations and more than 40 deaths.

With the continuous increase in confirmed cases, access to testing is crucial, and as schools prepare to return to class in the fall, the health of students and faculty is of the utmost priority.
