Leander will host a day of free COVID-19 testing in September, according to a news release.

The testing will take place Sept. 26 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. or until supplies last at the Leander Extended Opportunity Building, 300 S. West Drive, Leander.


This is a walk-up site that will not require an appointment prior to being tested, the release said. It is important to note this is a cheek swab test, so people cannot eat, drink or use tobacco products 20 minutes prior to the test, it said.

The testing is open to all Texans regardless of county of residence; however, only Williamson County residents' results will appear on the Williamson County COVID-19 dashboard.

The testing site is put on by the Williamson County Office of Emergency Management and the Texas Division of Emergency Management.
