More Alabama schools proactive with COVID-19 testing, students receive monthly gift card
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. —
Every week you can find about 70 percent of Avondale Elementary school students take a COVID-19 test in this room. In almost two years since UAB and the testing company started this program, Dr. Angela Sullivan says more schools across Alabama have hopped on board.
“We were able to onboard a lot of schools last year. Right now, we have about 236 schools and 43 school systems who participate,” Sullivan said.
She adds many just want to get a better hold of the virus in the classroom while keeping daily group activities going.
