The Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) in coordination with Texas State University Round Rock is hosting free COVID-19 testing Mondays through Thursdays and the second Saturday each month now through April 30.
Testing will be conducted at Texas State University Round Rock, 1555 University Blvd. Testing will begin at 10 a.m. and close by 6 p.m. or until supplies last. This is a drive-up site that will not require an appointment prior to being tested; however, pre-registration is encouraged by visiting texas.spartancovidtesting.com.
Participants do not need symptoms to be tested, and no insurance is required. Results will be available 3 to 5 days after testing. You will receive an automated text and/or email with results once available.
Vaccine update (as of Feb. 4)
Beginning in January, Texas established large vaccination sites or hubs around the state. The goal of these hubs is to provide more people the vaccine and a simpler way to sign up for an appointment. Providers will focus on vaccinating areas and populations hardest hit by COVID-19. Family Hospital Systems is the local hub providing COVID-19 vaccinations in Williamson County and has a sign-up list. You may sign up no matter which vaccination group you are part of; however, the vaccine is only being administered to people in Phase 1A and 1B at this time. Learn more
Williamson County has set up a call center to serve as a resource for residents interested in COVID-19 vaccine information. The call center number is 512-943-1600.
The call center is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Call center representatives can assist individuals with information such as how to sign up on the Family Hospital Systems vaccine waitlist by walking them through the process over the phone, confirm that someone is on the waitlist, give information about the County’s vaccine plan, and share details on the County’s Vaccine Registration Technical Assistance (VRTA) sites. Please note, the call center representatives cannot issue COVID-19 vaccine appointment confirmations, check where someone is on the FHS waitlist, or give any medical advice.
