In partnership with Williamson County, the clinic will allow individuals who wish to be tested for the novel coronavirus but who are not experiencing symptoms to receive one test free of charge at its Round Rock and Cedar Park locations, the release said.
The tests will be offered at 3620 E. Whitestone Blvd., Cedar Park, and 1925 A.W. Grimes Blvd., Round Rock.
The move is a part of the county’s effort to ramp up testing.
“Having more people tested is an important step to being able to track the spread of COVID-19,” Williamson County Commissioner Cynthia Long said in the release. “We appreciate that our partners at Family Emergency Room have the capacity to open up testing to more individuals who wish to be tested.”
Family Emergency Room and the county first partnered May 1 to offer tests to symptomatic residents.
Interested residents must go to www.wilco.org/coronavirus to fill out a form first. Schedulers contact patients Monday through Friday; however, appointments are available seven days a week, the release said.
As of May 12, Williamson County had reported 397 confirmed cases and 16 coronavirus-related deaths.
