During the 2021-22 academic year, Pike is maintaining a weekly COVID-19 surveillance testing program. Pike reports off-campus test results as well as our on-campus testing results.
Please know that if your family member has been deemed a close contact via our internal contact tracing with a COVID-19 positive community member, you will be contacted before this data is published by Stacey Aufiero or Sara Stevens.
On rare occasions, PCR tests are inconclusive for unknown reasons. An indeterminate result means that the test did not detect a clear positive or negative result. In these cases, often there is a problem with the sample collected, such as the individual's nose was too dry, or the individual's sample contained too much mucus or the sample did not provide enough DNA on the swab. It is also possible that a COVID-19 infection is present but the test was done too early to detect the virus. When we receive an indeterminate outcome, impacted community members are notified and must produce a negative result before returning to school.
This is a weekly report and should circumstances change those impacted will be contacted immediately.
