“Fort Worth will continue to collaborate with partners to ensure COVID-19 testing is readily available and accessible to all residents throughout all of Fort Worth,” said Mayor Betsy Price. “Testing plays a critical role in our continued efforts to prioritize public health, keep Fort Worth’s economy open and get our children back in school.”

City staff and emergency response volunteers will continue to staff two COVID-19 testing sites, which are currently open:

  • Dickies Arena’s Chevrolet Parking Garage, 3464 Trail Drive 8 a.m.-noon.
  • J.P. Elder Middle School, 709 N.W. 21st St. 2-6 p.m.

“We remain committed to bringing more COVID-19 testing to Tarrant County,” said Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley. “That’s why we’re funding 60 percent of the cost of testing in our partnership with the City of Fort Worth. If you exhibit symptoms, please schedule an appointment and get tested.”

City staff from Police, Fire and Code Compliance departments, along with certified city volunteers for emergency response, are staffing the sites and guiding patients through the self-administered saliva sample collection process. Tests are offered at no cost to the public; however, insurance information is collected, where possible.
