Drivers lined up at Glendale High School for free COVID-19 tests for GUSD employees this week.

Glendale Unified School District offered free, drive-thru COVID-19 testing for all employees on Monday after the Thanksgiving holiday break.
The district organized a temporary drive-thru testing site at Glendale High School in partnership with Vital Medical Services. The rapid-response nasal swab test was provided to any GUSD employee who wanted it.
“We are happy to offer our employees access to convenient drive-thru COVID-19 testing as a proactive measure to ensure our community stays safe and healthy,” said Armina Gharpetian, president of the GUSD Board of Education, in a statement.
Employees received their results within 10 to 20 minutes. The district reported that 263 employees out of more than 2,600 took tests on Monday.
“Student and employee health and safety is and always will be our top priority,” Superintendent Vivian Ekchian said in a statement. “As we continue to provide essential services for our community, we are taking all responsible measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.”
