“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.”

In coming weeks, additional sites will be added, as suitable locations are identified.

“It is vitally important that we bring more testing to Tarrant County,” said Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley. “We’re excited to expand our partnership with the City of Fort Worth to add more testing across the county, making it easier for residents to get tested.”

The city’s emergency response volunteers will continue to staff two COVID-19 testing sites, which are currently open:

•  J.P. Elder Middle School, 709 N.W. 21st St. 8 a.m.-noon.

•  Dickies Arena’s Chevrolet Parking Garage, 3464 Trail Drive. 2-6:30 p.m.

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.
