AN IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR IRSD STAFF
IRSD Team,

Thank you for your continued patience as we work through issues some of you may have encountered with email links and the DSC portal.  The purpose of this email is to provide clarification on the following items:

• DSC is working on development of an option for employees to indicate the date they received a positive test result which negates the need for weekly testing for 90 days if you are unvaccinated.  As soon as this upgrade is available, we will notify all employees.

• We recently learned that UPS does not stop at each of our schools daily to pick up packages. They only make school stops when packages need to be delivered thus creating the inability for daily stops.  This will result in the need for employees to drop off their Vault test kit at a nearby UPS drop off location.  Employees may log into www.ups.com to find drop off locations and hours close to your home or work site.  Additionally, here is a link that employees can use to schedule a pick-up of their COVID kit at their home.  There are no additional fees to utilize this service as Vault provides a prepaid mailing label to return this kit.

• Some staff indicated a Curative link is not working.  When links are forwarded via email, it often creates a problem with opening the link.  In order to access Curative testing sites, please go directly to www.curative.com

Thank you for reaching out with questions.  Our continued goal is to support our employees with this public health requirement.
