Testing Locations and Information

Get Tested For COVID-19 Now

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. We are prioritizing our first responders and healthcare professionals, especially those who work with vulnerable populations such as nursing homes, to seek testing as well.

Please check back often as these documents or resources may have updates or new information added.

How To Get Tested

To make it easier to gain access to testing, the Houston and Harris County Public Health has developed a tool that allows you to check your symptoms and schedule an appointment with a testing facility.

For employees who do not have access to the online tool, you can call 832-927-7575 to get scheduled for testing.

Free testing is available regardless of citizenship status and for those who are uninsured.
