Free COVID-19 Testing Offered by Tarrant County Public Health
Tarrant County Public Health has begun offering free COVID-19 testing at locations across the County to help identify cases and help patients receive early care to reduce the growing community spread threat.
The free COVID-19 testing sites will operate on rotating schedule throughout Tarrant County.
If a Tarrant County resident feels they have been exposed to COVID-19 or feel sick, it is important to get tested.
“Testing remains an important tool in our efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19,” said Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley. “The County’s testing is free and easily accessible, so there is no reason not to get tested if you suspect you may have COVID-19.”
Tarrant County is currently at the High Community Spread Level, meaning, that more than 100 cases per 100,000 have been found in the past seven days.
Previously the Texas Division of Emergency Management had operated testing sites across Tarrant County but reduced their operations due to slowing demand and closed their last sites in June.
These COVID-19 testing sites will remain open as needed going forward. Additional sites and times may be added. COVID-19 testing information is updated on covidtesting.tarrantcounty.com.
COVID-19 causes respiratory illness with cough, fever and shortness of breath and may lead to bronchitis and severe pneumonia. For more information go to coronavirus.tarrantcounty.com or call the Tarrant County Public Health information line, 817-248-6299, 7 a.m. - 7 p.m., Monday - Sunday.
