COVID testing results slow for Community Labs as demand skyrockets

SAN ANTONIO – Community Labs will resume COVID-19 testing on Friday at its public collection sites after temporarily suspending service on Thursday due to the wintry weather.

Since most of the locations require customers to line up outdoors, Community Labs, health and city officials didn’t want to put people at risk in the cold Thursday.
