Pflugerville test site closes

Thursday, March 17, 2022 by Tai Moses

Due to a decrease in demand for its services – from what health officials hope “is a sign of fewer cases” – the Covid-19 test site in Pflugerville rolled up operations and shut its doors yesterday. You can still get Covid testing at Austin Public Health’s Metz Elementary site in East Austin, Tuesday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome, but it will be more efficient to make an appointment online. And, of course, you may order free, at-home Covid tests through the U.S. government; every household is eligible for two sets of four tests. If you’re feeling at all Covid-y, please do get tested right away. In case you haven’t committed the list of Covid symptoms to memory, here it is.
