SAN MARCOS, Texas - The Texas Division of Emergency Management will be offering free COVID-19 testing in San Marcos on Sunday, June 14 and Saturday, June 20.
The free testing is part of the Governor's new initiative to test underserved communities.
"As the State of Texas continues to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we are committed to ensuring every Texan has access to COVID-19 testing no matter where they live," said Abbott. "We must address the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on underserved and minority communities and ensure that anyone who needs a test can have one.”
