Two mobile testing sites for the coronavirus will begin testing registered residents April 14 and 20, respectively, Harris County Precinct 4 Commissioner Jack Cagle announced in a news release April 13.

The two testing sites are expected to handle as many as 100 tests per day with that number increasing daily, according to the release. Visitors must register online before visiting the Harris County Public Health testing sites. The addresses of the sites will only be provided to those successfully completing their testing registration, according to the release.

The Tomball testing site will open April 14 and perform testing April 14-16 and April 27-29. The Humble testing site will open April 20, and perform testing April 20-22 and May 7-9.

Community members must complete an online assessment to determine whether they should be tested for the coronavirus, according to the release. If deemed at risk for coronavirus, community members will be given a code and a phone number to call. After a telephone consultation, those who are still deemed at risk of the coronavirus will be given a code and information on where and when to be tested, according to the release.

Unregistered visitors to the testing sites will be turned away by security officials; walk-ins will not be tested, according to the release.
