COVID-19 Testing Availability

If you think you’ve been exposed to the Coronavirus, contact your primary care physician to discuss your concerns and for advice on getting tested, and caring for yourself and loved ones.  You can also schedule a test at community testing sites if you’re a resident of Tarrant County.  You’ll be asked to complete this online self-screening assessment to schedule an appointment or call the Tarrant County Public Health information line at (817) 248-6299.  The site lists community testing sites at locations throughout the county, and a list of FAQ.  Tests are offered at no cost to the public; however, insurance information is collected when possible. 

If you need additional testing options, the Texas Department of State Health Services has provided a tool to identify other COVID-19 test collection sites based on your location.  These sites include community centers, such as the Burleson Recreation Center (BRiCk), as well as pharmacies and urgent care centers.  Click on the link for a complete list, and note that in some cases, deductibles, co-pays or co-insurance may apply.  In some locations, you may be required to have prior authorization for the test or your physician’s referral.
