Testing at the surge locations is available to individuals age 13 years and older – including those experiencing symptoms; those who believe they may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19; and anyone who is worried about possibly having the virus. These surge sites rely on a separate network of labs for processing and will help clear the backlog of tests causing delays.

To visit these locations, residents will be required to make an appointment through this new form or by calling 832-927-7575.
