On Wednesday, January 5th, 2022, Curative Labs informed the City of New Braunfels that the COVID-19 testing site located in the parking lot of City Hall will close temporarily, effective immediately and until further notice.
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. 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 the rapid spread of the Omicron variant, unfortunately our staff has been exposed,” said Terra Williams, Curative’s Texas Director of Growth. “We will temporarily be closing the site. We are doing this to contain any potential risk and spread to the community.”
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/.
