COVID-19 Testing Available


Missouri’s BinaxNOW Antigen Testing Program for K-12 Institutions


Osage Co. R-I is now able to provide COVID-19 Antigen Testing on a limited basis.  The tests are intended for symptomatic students and staff.  The Abbott BinaxNOW test is a minimally invasive anterior nasal swab test. The test must be administered by a trained health professional (or trained designee), and yields results in just 15 minutes without any additional equipment.  A consent form is required to be completed before testing occurs. 


  • At this time, test administration is for symptomatic students and staff.
  • Testing will occur on days in which the school nurse is on site, which is typically one day per week.
  • Testing may also occur by appointment with the school nurse designee. 
  • Symptomatic students and staff should not come to school until a testing appointment is confirmed.  Please call ahead.
  • Contact the Elementary Office at 573-763-5446 for further questions.
