With more than 500 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Travis County, patients exhibiting symptoms remain a top priority for testing. For Pflugerville-area residents with concerns about their symptoms, here is a list of in-person coronavirus testing sites. While Pflugerville does not currently have drive-thru testing sites within the city, representatives from Baylor Scott & White Health said testing can be arranged at a BSW facility.

“If a provider advises that a patient should be tested for COVID-19, specimen collection can be arranged at a Baylor Scott & White medical facility or drive-thru specimen collection site," the statement read. "They might be directed to these sites after they complete an online screening questionnaire and subsequent consultation with our medical team. Please note that specimen collection sites may relocate based on a number of factors.”

Baylor Scott and White staff stressed the importance of taking the online questionnaire before showing up in-person to a testing location. Following the completion of the online questionnaire, individuals may be directed to one of several area testing sites, based on a number of factors, staff said.
