Tri-County Area Gets Another Round Of Free COVID-19 Testing
By Public Radio Staff
For the second time this month, a mobile testing unit will make a swing through the Big Bend Region, stopping in Presidio, Alpine, Marfa and Fort Davis this week.
Testing will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or until supplies run out. During recent rounds of testing, some locations have seen long lines form, so local officials advise arriving early and giving yourself plenty of time.
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged, as it can speed up the testing process. You can pre-register using this link — just select your testing location from the list. If you don't pre-register, medical attendants will likely ask you to do so on your phone while you wait in line.
