New COVID-19 Testing Site Available in Williamson County

Williamson County residents now have a new way to be able to be tested for the COVID-19 virus. Williamson County and the Williamson County and Cities Health District (WCCHD) are offering a public testing site to increase the ability of county residents to get a COVID-19 test. The site is for people who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms; however, this test does not require a visit with a physician and is free of charge. Individuals must first take an online assessment based on screening criteria from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). An on-line screening tool will be used to assess if someone is eligible for a COVID-19 test based on CDC criteria. The online assessment tool will be available Monday, April 27, by going to http://www.wcchd.org/COVID-19/testing.php.  The first tests will be conducted starting Thursday, April 30, 2020. Individuals are expected to receive test results in a few days depending upon lab capacity.
