As reported by CBS Local in the article titled "Pennsylvania Announces Weekly COVID Testing for Schools, Educators", weekly classroom testing will need school districts to opt in and parental approval. With the exception of Philadelphia, which has its own COVID-19 testing program, the statewide program will be available to all public and private schools in the state.

Students who do not participate will face no consequences, according to the Health Department.

The state announced the testing program in response to a dramatic increase in the number of infections and hospitalizations.

Every day, over 2,100 cases are being confirmed in Pennsylvania.
