Telehealth Services – COVID 19 Screening and Testing
In efforts to reduce COVID-19 spread, the Fort Worth ISD has partnered with Virtual Care for Kids and Families to offer students and their families telehealth services.
Students can see a Texas-based pediatrician or family provider within minutes from home virtually via computer, smartphone or tablet for urgent care services including minor colds, the flu, sore throat, cough, ear concerns, headaches, sinus or allergy issues or pink eye. Additionally, Virtual Care for Kids and Families is offering coronavirus screening and testing in English and Spanish. Students must be registered prior to receiving the service; please Visit https://urgentcarekids.com/fwisd/ to register your child for services. Virtual Care for Kids and Families has expanded their partnership to better serve the entire Fort Worth ISD community and stop the spread of COVID-19 by making screening and testing available for parents and FWISD staff.
