It was announced by the City of Fredericksburg that they will be conducting COVID-19 testing on Wednesday, May 13.

The information, as provided by the City of Fredericksburg, can be seen below.


On Wednesday, May 13, 2020, the Texas Military Department, in conjunction with the City of Fredericksburg, the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM), the Texas Emergency Medical Task Force (EMTF), and the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), will be conducting a mobile COVID-19 screening event from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. at Fredericksburg Elementary School located at 1608 N. Adams Street. This testing will be offered free of charge to the public.

Those wishing to be tested must register online at https://txcovidtest.org/ or by calling (512)883-2400. Testing will not be provided without an appointment.

A screening process will be in place and administered by State Health Department personnel trained to gather information and assess symptoms which could suggest that a person should be tested for COVID-19. Anyone with the primary symptoms of COVID-19, including fever and/or chills, dry or productive cough, fatigue, body aches/muscle or joint pain, shortness of breath, sore throat, headaches, nausea/vomiting/diarrhea, nasal congestion, or loss of taste and/or smell, will be eligible for testing without the need of a prescription from a medical professional.


Those being tested will remain in their vehicle and be administered the test without leaving their automobile. Once results are available, patients will receive a text message with a link to a portal with results and information. Those testing positive will also be contacted by their local health department.

For additional information, please contact Catherine Kuhlmann, Fredericksburg Fire EMS Infectious Disease Control Officer, at (830)992-9218.
