On Friday, August 13, Curative Labs informed the City of New Braunfels that the COVID-19 testing site located in the parking lot of City Hall will be temporarily closed beginning Monday, August 16.
COVID-19 testing is still available at many locations in New Braunfels including doctor’s offices and local pharmacies.
The City signed a contract with Curative Labs in April 2021 to provide free testing in the parking lot of City Hall, located at 550 Landa Street. The agreement allowed the City and County to maintain a testing facility while their focus shifted to providing vaccines to residents and conducting large-scale vaccine clinics.
“Due to staffing changes, we wanted to provide an update that we will temporarily be closing the site,” said Terra Williams, Curative’s Texas Director of Growth. “We are actively hiring and training to ensure that we can continue to serve the community as soon as possible.”
If you need a COVID-19 test, call your primary care physician or visit a local pharmacy, such as Walgreens or CVS. The Texas Department of State Health Services provides a map of testing locations available at https://covidtest.tdem.texas.gov/.
