The Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) announced yesterday that they will offer free COVID-19 testing in San Marcos on Sunday, June 14 and Saturday, June 20 as part of the Governor’s new initiative to test underserved communities.
"As the State of Texas continues to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we are committed to ensuring every Texan has access to COVID-19 testing no matter where they live," said Governor Abbott. "We must address the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on underserved and minority communities and ensure that anyone who needs a test can have one.”
Mobile testing will take place at Bonham Pre-k School, 1225 TX-123 on Sunday, June 14 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will provide two drive-through lanes and one walk-up lane for participants. Additional free mobile testing will be offered on Saturday, June 20 at Bowie Elementary, 4020 Monterrey Oak, San Marcos from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Appointments are not required for an individual to be tested but anyone wanting to pre-register may call 512.883.2400 or visit www.txcovidtest.org. Results are expected to be available 10-25 days following the testing which is being administered in cooperation with the Texas National Guard.
