COVID-19 Testing

Due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in Gillespie County, the demand for COVID testing in the community has also risen.  This demand has caused a shortage of tests not only locally, but also nationwide.


**As of Friday, January 21, 2022, the Hill Country Community Needs Council will NO LONGER be distributing COVID-19 tests.**

What To Do If You Test Positive with an At-Home Test

If someone in your household tests positive, they should self-isolate and seek medical care from your healthcare provider as additional testing may be necessary.  It is recommended they seek out a PCR test for verification of the positive test.  PCR test locations in our area can be found at https://sanantonio.curativeinc.com.  Follow up with your primary physician or seek medical care if necessary.
