After Weather Delay, Free COVID-19 Testing Resumes In Big Bend Region This Week


By Public Radio Staff

Like just about everything, COVID-19 screening was interrupted by the massive winter storm that pummeled Texas last week. But as mild weather returns, so will mobile, public coronavirus testing, with stops in Presidio, Alpine, Marfa, and Fort Davis.

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.
