Ascension, Baylor Scott and White, and the Family Health Center have online screening forms for COVID-19 and will accept new patients and people without insurance. Testing must be ordered by a physician. Testing is not done at the Public Health District.

The city also says social distancing is essential, and the less time somebody spends with large groups of people – the less likely they are to become infected.
