Fort Bend County is opening a third no-cost, drive-thru coronavirus testing site May 1 at Fort Bend ISD’s Thurgood Marshall High School in Missouri City.

Fort Bend County covers all costs associated with tests performed at its public testing locations. The county is also continuing its partnership with AccessHealth to perform the tests and LabCorp to provide test kits and results.

The county’s two other testing sites are located at the Smart Financial Centre in Sugar Land and at the Fort Bend County fairgrounds in Rosenberg.

In order to be tested, Fort Bend County residents must first sign up online or call 281-238-2363 and complete a prescreening questionnaire before scheduling an appointment date and time.

Residents do not have to be experiencing symptoms of the virus to be tested, and results are returned in three to five days.



Fort Bend County Judge KP George, along with elected officials who represent the Missouri City community, will speak at a press conference at 9 a.m. May 1 to mark the opening of the site.

At 168 cases, Missouri City has the highest number of confirmed positive cases of any other single jurisdiction in Fort Bend County.
