There’s a new COVID-19 testing site at the old Shell gas station at Northwest Highway and Abrams Road.
The drive-up site, YesNoCovid, offers FDA-authorized rapid tests by appointment, and they also accept walks-ins. The BD Veritor Plus Rapid Sars-Cov-2 Test and Healgen COVID-19 Rapid Test provides results as accurate as a PCR molecular test for $125, according to the site’s website.
YesNoCovid works with San Antonio-based Texas Star Med Clinic to offer mobile collection depots to combat the spread of the virus, per their website. Staff are highly trained, work under HIPAA compliance and are authorized to administer COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Tests.
The site at 6505 E. Northwest Highway is open daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. YesNoCovid also has sites across the Dallas and Austin areas.
What to know when you arrive:
- As a drive-thru site, you will not exit your vehicle at any time during testing.
- After payment is processed, staff will supply a patient information sheet. Once this is completed, staff will administer the nasal swab test.
- If you book an appointment, display your ID and, if possible, confirmation email on your dashboard to the testing site staff.
- Your results will be processed in 15 minutes.
