Williamson County is temporarily taking down applications for free coronavirus testing through Family Emergency Rooms from the county’s website until a backlog of testing requests has been scheduled.
People can still apply for free coronavirus testing through the Williamson County and Cities Health District website at www.wcchd.org/COVID-19/testing.php. The district has a testing site in Georgetown.
There are approximately 350 people scheduled for testing and more than a thousand in line to be scheduled at the Family Emergency Rooms in Cedar Park and Round Rock, according to a county news release.
Eight people have tested positive out of the 564 tests performed through the county’s partnership with Family Emergency Rooms, the release said.
County residents will be notified when they can again request a free COVID-19 test at the Family Emergency Rooms at wilco.org.
