Make-up Lead Testing for SCS Students Who Miss In-School Testing

Shelby County Health Department

SHELBY COUNTY, TN – The Shelby County Health Department is providing blood lead testing at Shelby County Schools with elevated lead levels in water samples. The testing is a continuation of testing that began before the winter holidays, and the process will continue for the next several months. Blood samples will be collected from children whose parents returned the screening and consent forms as requested by Shelby County Schools.
