NYSDOH requires HCSD to collect data on positive COVID-19 cases and report these cases to the NYS COVID-19 dashboard. These cases include positive test results from Harrison's weekly PCR testing program and test results reported to the District by parents, faculty and staff. Updated COVID-19 data for the District and each school can be found on the NYS COVID-19 Report Card.

Parents, faculty and staff who are interested in receiving a free COVID-19 rapid antigen test kit can pick them up in the main office of each school. Each test kit contains two (2) tests, and they can be used whenever an individual begins to experience COVID-19 symptoms. These free test kits are a helpful resource given the recent increase in positive cases and in anticipation of large-group gatherings occuring this spring.
