Covid 19 Info

COVID Test Kits Available at Cody!

The Hospital for Sick Children is pleased to provide the COVID-19 Saliva Testing Program in partnership with Maurice Cody PS. Under this program, we are able to offer COVID-19 saliva test kits for symptomatic staff, students, and household members, or those who have been identified by Toronto Public Health (TPH) as a high risk/close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 positive case. We also offer cohort and/or outbreak testing as recommended by TPH.

Through participation in this program, we hope to provide a test that is painless and accessible, reduce COVID-19 cases in our school, keep schools open, promote healthy childhood development, and support the health and safety of your community.

The kits have now arrived at the school and are available on an as needed basis. If you are in need of a kit please contact the school office to arrange for pick up.
