HUTTO, Texas (KXAN) — People can drive up next week and get a free COVID-19 test in Hutto.

The Williamson County Office of Emergency Management is partnering with the Texas Division of Emergency Management and Hutto Fire Rescue/Emergency Services District 3 to offer free testing from Sept. 22-24.

The testing will happen at the Hutto Fire Rescue station, located at 501 Exchange Boulevard in Hutto. The site will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or until supplies last.

County leaders said the drive-up site will not require an appointment. However, they noted this will be a cheek swab test, so people should not eat, drink or use tobacco products at least 20 minutes beforehand. People are also asked to bring a cell phone to complete registration on-site and prepare to wait if there’s high demand.

The free COVID-19 tests are available to anyone regardless if they live in Williamson County.
