If you missed out on getting a COVID-19 test in Copperas Cove this week, there will be more testing done this Saturday in Lampasas. It's important to remember that if you are feeling sick, you should stay home and complete the online screening to get tested.

We received word from Copperas Cove Deputy Fire Chief Gary D. Young on Thursday about free mobile testing this Saturday, August 22nd. It happens at the Lampasas Fire Station located at 1107 E. 4th Street beginning at 8:00 AM and continuing until 5:00 PM.

Please remember that if you are feeling any of the following symptoms, you are eligible to receive a free test:

  • Fever and/or chills
  • Cough (dry or productive)
  • Fatigue
  • Body aches/muscle or joint pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sore throat
  • Headaches
  • Nausea/vomiting/diarrhea
  • Nasal congestion
  • Loss of taste and/or smell

Tests are free and can be set up by appointment only by visiting: https://texas.curativeinc.com/welcome.

Remember to wear your mask so that if you are sick you're reducing the risk of infecting anyone else you may encounter on your way to or back from your test. Wash or sanitize your hands frequently, and physically distance as much as possible to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
