In response to both the high demand for coronavirus tests and the alarming rise in active cases, Ascarate Park has been added to the growing list of COVID-19 testing sites.

The county park will be serve as a drive-thru location from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. seven days a week, TFN.

Like the other state testing sites in the city and county, testing is free and available to anyone 5 years and older with or without symptoms. No appointment is needed, but only 1,000 tests a day will be administered. Those choosing to use the Ascarate Park location are advised to use the entrance off Fonseca Drive.

The county park mega site is the fourth new location opened to handle the current demand for testing and cut down on wait times. Last week the City of El Paso established testing sites at UTEP, the Eastside Sports Complex on Montwood, and the Region 19 Kenworthy Complex located at 9776 Kenworthy.
