The Wolf Administration announced two important initiatives to support K-12 schools and institutions of higher education during the 2021-2022 school year. The Pennsylvania Department of Health is directing vaccine providers to support COVID-19 vaccination clinics at institutions of higher education and K-12 schools. Additionally, both Pennsylvania departments of Health and Education announced a partnership with Concentric by Ginkgo Bioworks (Ginkgo) to provide free COVID-19 testing in K-12 schools across the commonwealth to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and outbreaks in schools during the 2021-2022 school year."A priority of the Wolf Administration is to have and maintain in-person instruction, sports programs, and other extra-curricular activities at schools," Acting Secretary of Health Alison Beam said. "Unfortunately, we continue to see predominately unvaccinated Pennsylvanians infected with multiple variants of COVID-19, including the highly contagious Delta variant. This reinforces the need for accessible COVID-19 vaccinations for eligible individuals in K-12 schools so that our students, teachers and staff can stay safe."
