Harris County COVID-19 testing centers that have been operating in Baytown and Katy will soon move to new sites in Pasadena and Cy-Fair, officials announced in a May 28 press release.

Saturday, May 30, will be the last day of operations for the Goose Creek ISD Stallworth Stadium and Katy ISD Legacy Stadium locations, and residents needing to be tested should make appointments as soon as possible.

Services will begin Monday, June 1, at San Jacinto College Central, 8060 Spencer Hwy., Pasadena, and Pridgeon Stadium, 11355 Falcon Road, Houston, weather permitting.

These two new sites will have the capacity to test up to 750 individuals daily—up from 500 at the previous locations. Appointments are required.

The county continues to operate a total of six testing locations, where up to 1,700 residents can access testing each day. Officials said smaller mobile sites will occasionally visit the Baytown and Katy communities once the larger sites relocate.
