Wednesday, August 11, 2021 by Tai Moses
With Covid-19 cases aggressively surging due to the highly contagious Delta variant, health officials are urging anyone with signs or symptoms of Covid to get tested, regardless of their vaccination status. As Central Health explains, “While the vaccine doesn’t make you invincible from Covid-19 and its variants – including Delta – the vaccine significantly reduces your chance of getting extremely sick, being hospitalized, or dying.” Free community testing is available at the George Morales Dove Springs Recreation Center, 5801 Ainez Drive, Tuesday and Thursday from 3-7 p.m. and Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Drive-thru tests are available at the St. Johns site at 7211 N. Interstate 35 Frontage Road, Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Learn more about Covid tests in Austin-Travis County here.
