Testing is free and open to anyone who does not exhibit symptoms of COVID-19. It consists of a self-administered PCR test that delivers results in 24 hours, according to Community Labs, which partnered with the City of San Antonio.

“As San Antonio experiences a surge in COVID-19 cases, it is more important than ever to identify the asymptomatic silent spreaders among us, so they can quarantine, helping to suppress the virus,” President of Community Labs Sal Webber said in a news release.

Appointments are not required, and walk-ins are welcome. Proof of insurance is not required.

The existing schedule at the community centers, as well as the AT&T Center, will remain in place.

Cuellar Community Center at 5626 San Fernando St. and Ramirez Community Center at 1011 Gillette Blvd. are also open from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Testing at the AT&T Center is offered from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday, except on Dec. 11 when there will be no testing due to a Spurs Sports & Entertainment event.

For those who do exhibit COVID-19 symptoms, the city of San Antonio also offers free testing. A complete schedule of testing options can be found by clicking here.
