CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — As the COVID-19 pandemic continues and the delta variant continues to spread, Corpus Christi and the Nueces County Public Health District will begin offering free drive-thru COVID-19 testing.

The testing will take place Monday August 9 to Thursday August 12 at the old Christus Spohn Hospital Memorial site on Hospital Boulevard from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Officials ask those who plan to attend to wear a mask and keep your vehicle window up until instructed by the medical staff to lower the window.

“As Covid-19 cases are rapidly increasing in Nueces County, more people are searching for trusted places to get tested. The Health District will begin testing for our community this week,” said Corpus Christi-Nueces Public Health District Director Annette Rodriguez in a release.
