There are reports from people who have been tested at freestanding ERs of bills exceeding $6,000 for a COVID-19 test. If you decide you need to be tested the above link is a good resource or you can register locally in Blanco and our local EMS will test you for free. If you are asymptomatic you may have to wait behind others who have symptoms. To register, go online to: BlancoCOVIDTest.org. If you have a problem registering please call 844.868.8308.
SPECIAL NOTICE (06/30/2020)
The laboratory is currently over capacity due to increased demand. As such, today we are testing symptomatic patients only. If you do NOT currently have symptoms, your testing registration will be placed onto a ‘STANDBY’ list, and you will be contacted once the lab has capacity for asymptomatic patients. Capacity will be reviewed weekdays at noon.
IF YOU CURRENTLY HAVE SYMPTOMS, please continue with registration. Patients with current symptoms will continue to be prioritized and tested immediately (typically same day).
If you have been exposed to COVID-19, but do not have symptoms, you are required to quarantine for 14 days, regardless if you are tested and regardless of your test results.
If you have questions regarding testing, please call our hotline at (844) 868-8308.
