COVID-19 Resources for Staff

The CDC and RIDOH (Rhode Island Department of Health) made significant changes to the PreK-12 COVID-19 Guidance. Per the Superintendent's email to staff on January 6, 2022, PSD will be following elements of the new guidance effective January 10, 2022.

If you purchased an at-home COVID-19 test on or after January 15, 2022, you may be eligible to get reimbursed for the cost of up to 8 tests per month. Learn more here. This benefit is also available as a direct benefit at point-of-service. Most over-the-counter COVID-19 tests are covered through your employee pharmacy benefit. Members can obtain an OTC COVID-19 test with no upfront out of pocket cost, simply by presenting their prescription benefit ID card to any in network pharmacy that elects to offer COVID-19 test through this program.
