As local efforts have shifted to hosting weekly, large-scale vaccination clinics, city and county officials have signed a license agreement with Curative for the company to take over testing operations.
“This agreement with Curative allows the City and County to maintain a testing facility while also allowing the focus to remain on providing as many vaccines as possible to local residents,” New Braunfels City Manager Robert Camareno said in a statement.
The drive-thru test site will begin operations April 12 in the parking lot of City Hall, located at 550 Landa St., New Braunfels. Free tests will be available to the public Mon.-Fri. from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
The Curative test will be a modified version of the PCR test, and those being tested will be able to administer their own swabs.
