  • 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.

     

    New Drive-Thru COVID-19 Testing Locations Open Across Tarrant County

    September 10, 2021 – (Tarrant County) - Tarrant County Public Health will open two new drive-thru COVID-19 testing sites on Friday, September 10. The sites at the Resource Connection and the Northeast Annex will begin operating three days per week, Friday through Sunday. The sites will provide the shallow nasal swab test for all ages. Advance sign-ups will be seen at their appointment time ahead of those who arrive without an appointment.

    “If you have symptoms or believe you have been exposed to COVID-19, it is extremely important that you get tested,” said Tarrant County Precinct 1 Commissioner Roy Charles Brooks. “The opening of a testing site at the Resource Connection will make it far easier for many Tarrant County residents to get tested. We must stay vigilant and do what we can to protect ourselves and our loved ones from this virus.”

    New Testing Locations:

    Resource Connection
    1500 Circle Drive – Parking Lot D
    Fort Worth, TX 76119

    Northeast Annex
    837 Brown Trail
    Bedford, TX 76022

    Those with appointments will be seen first, ahead of those who walk-up. The sites will operate on Fridays: 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Results will be available between 24-48 hours after testing. The test results will be sent via text or email based on the participants preference or by calling 877-862-4647. Those individuals who do not arrive in a vehicle, walk-ups, will also be able to receive a test.

    “The need for testing has continued to increase since the begging of August,” said Tarrant County Public Health Director Vinny Taneja. “The Delta variant has shown itself to be more contagious, infecting more people causing more hospitalizations and deaths than prior iterations of the disease.”

    Additional testing locations have also been added by the City of Fort Worth and Tarrant County College. Those and many other testing sites can be found attarrantcounty.com/covidtesting.

    COVID-19 causes respiratory illness with cough, fever and shortness of breath and may lead to bronchitis and severe pneumonia.

  • FWISD Requests Employees Testing Positive, Exposed to COVID-19 Report Case to District

    District employees must report whether they’ve tested positive for COVID-19 or have been in close contact with a person with a confirmed virus case, per the Fort Worth ISD COVID-19 screening protocols.  

    Employees must contact their campus supervisor or campus principal. To the extent legally possible, the District will protect personal identifiable information from public disclosure at all times.

    “The Fort Worth Independent School District (‘FWISD’) seeks to protect the health, safety, and well-being of all its employees and students. The information … is being requested by FWISD to properly assess the level of risk and potential exposure to yourself and others,” according to the authorization form.    

    In the event an employee has a COVID-19 case confirmed by testing or has been exposed to someone who has tested positive for the virus, they must follow all isolation and quarantine instructions from FWISD in accordance with local health authorities

    As a service to our employees the Fort Worth ISD is consolidating information about COVID-19 vaccine opportunities. 

    Tarrant County Public Health offers local vaccine clinics on a regular basis. You can learn more by visiting their website.
