The City of Waco went on to say anyone experiencing fever, cough, and difficulty breathing should call or visit their healthcare provider’s website first for screening.
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.
