Round Rock ISD is partnering with Curative to offer free COVID-19 community testing beginning Sept. 7.

While children under the age of 18 will need consent forms signed by parents, all community members will be able to use free testing services offered by the district and Curative at the Raymond E. Hartfield Performing Arts Center at 5800 McNeil Drive, Austin, according to the district's website.


Testing will be available without appointment from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday on school operation days.

Those wanting to be tested are asked to follow on-site instructions to access the testing kiosk, sign in with their information and do their COVID-19 test. Results will be returned individually within one to two days, according to the district.
