McKinney ISD has partnered with GeneIQ to provide free COVID-19 testing to students and staff.

The district opened the drive-thru site on Oct. 25 at the north end of the MISD stadium parking lot. It is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Hours are subject to change depending on use of the site, the district said in an email.


GeneIQ, an approved vaccinator in the state of Texas, also operates a diagnostics lab that provides polymerase chain reaction testing. The company will also offer appointments for the community, but priority will be given to MISD students, staff and families.

Testing is by appointment only. More information is available once appointments are scheduled via this link.
