In response to the ongoing surge of coronavirus in our community, and to help meet the current high demand for testing, the City of El Paso and El Paso County continue to offer free COVID-19 tests at numerous drive-thru sites this week, Nov. 16 through Nov. 22.

Local health authorities encourage everyone to get tested, whether showing symptoms or not. Officials say it not only helps expose hotspots and track outbreaks, but 1 in 4 carriers do not show symptoms of being positive and are therefore unknowingly contributing to the spread.
