New No-Cost Pop-Up COVID-19 Testing Locations Coming to Neighborhoods

Metro Health and San Antonio Fire Department’s Mobile Integrated Health Program (MIH) have partnered to bring the community free and accessible testing in underserved and minority communities. Two walk-up COVID-19 test sites, which do not require an appointment, will open May 7 – 9 at the Las Palmas Library parking lot and Woodlawn Lake Park.

The Texas Department of Health and Human Services, Texas Emergency Medical Task Force, Texas Division of Emergency Management and the Texas Military Department have also added more mobile COVID-19 test collection dated and locations residents at no cost.

“My team is working every day to contain the virus and limit its impact, so we must provide resources in the areas of greatest need. By bringing no-cost COVID-19 testing sites into our neighborhoods, we are able to reach people that may not be able to access testing that is far from their home. We will continue to provide resources to our vulnerable communities in need because we are committed to addressing health inequities,” said Dr. Dawn Emerick, Director of Metro Health.
