HCPH encourages residents to get tested for COVID-19 if you feel you
have it or have been in contact with someone who tested positive.
Free testing is available regardless of citizenship status and insurance.
Testing locations shown below are managed by both HCPH and partnering organizations. As a result, availability and operating hours will vary as well as the time it takes for results to be returned.
In addition to mobile testing sites, HCPH helps organize stationary and fixed locations within Harris County.
To register, take the Self-Assessment survey online at covidcheck.hctx.net or call 832-927-7575. Choose your testing location and appointment time during registration. Once registered, take your confirmation and code to the site at the designated time.
Harris County Public Health offers free at-home COVID testing for county residents living out of Houston city limits. If you or someone you know cannot visit a testing site because of disability status, lack of transportation, or other valid reasons, contact us at 832-927-7575 or schedule an appointment at covidcheck.hctx.net.
In addition to sites operated by HCPH and our partners, there are numerous sites across Harris County that provide COVID-19 testing opportunities. For a comprehensive list of providers, please visit the DSHS COVID-19 Testing Sites map.

The process for acquiring test results will differ based on the location visited and whether the facility is operated by Harris County Public Health (HCPH). For locations not operated by HCPH (i.e., Alternate Sites), you must contact the facility directly for information regarding test results.
