Covid-19 Testing Sites

Getting tested at Houston Health Department-affiliated sites is FREE, and does not require proof of residency, citizenship or insurance. Some testing partners bill insurance. Contact your provider to make sure the testing parnter is in network.

Health department-affiliated testing sites offer viral tests that determine if a person is currently infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19. These PCR tests are conducted in certified laboratories and may average 48-72 hours for results, based on volume. Learn about the types of Covid-19 tests.
