Austin Public Health asks protesters to get tested
Monday, June 8, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano
In a response to “multiple large gatherings,” the city’s health authority is asking people who attended protests (and concerts?) to sign up for free Covid-19 tests. According to the city, “the Public Testing Enrollment Form’s requirements will be expanded to allow more individuals without symptoms to sign up for a testing date and time at APH’s drive-thru site. Individuals will still need to create an account at austintexas.gov/Covid19 and fill out the form before they can schedule a test.” More information about the testing process can be found here.
