Frisco ISD announced it closed its COVID-19 testing site at Kuykendall Stadium on Jan. 13 to make way for a site with a greater testing capacity.

Beginning Jan. 18, Bacchus Park at 13995 Main St. will serve as the new voluntary testing site. Separate entrance lines for students and staff will be established, according to the announcement.

FISD said a large response spurred the city of Frisco to allow Nomi Health to move the testing site to the public park.

Due to limited testing supplies and a worker shortage, FISD said the site will be closed to the general public, including family members of students and staff.

Both rapid and PCR tests will be offered, according to the district's website. However, only one may be offered depending on the availability of resources. Appointments are not necessary, but those seeking tests must preregister.


More information, including hours of operation and preregistration, can be found on the website. Questions regarding testing should be directed to Nomi Health at 512-355-0301.
