In response to the coronavirus pandemic, League City is offering free COVID-19 tests and conducting a blood drive next week.

League City will offer free mobile COVID-19 testing Jan. 11-15. Testing will be available daily from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. at the pavilion at the Chester L. Davis Sportsplex, 1251 W. League City Parkway, League City.

This testing is a free, state-supported test collection site with no appointment requirement. Residents do not need to be exhibiting symptoms to be tested, according to a League City news release.

Results will be available three to five days after the test.

The testing site will remain open if there is enough demand. If demand is low, the site will be closed early Jan. 13, according to the release.


On Jan. 27 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., the city will host a blood drive. Participants will be able to determine if they have COVID-19 antibodies, according to a city release.

The blood drive will be held at the League City Recreation Center at 400 W. Walker St., League City. Those who donate will receive an “I Love League City” pin. To make an appointment, visit www.leaguecity.com/giveblood.
