City of Garland Resident COVID-19 Testing Program

The City of Garland has partnered with a lab to provide up to 100 COVID-19 tests per day for Garland residents during the months of June and July.  COVID testing limitations have been due largely to lab testing capacity and funding availability.   The City has obtained funding that can be applied toward community COVID-19 testing through the CARES Act.  With funding availability, the City worked with Clinical Pathology Laboratories (CPL) to obtain testing capacity of up to 100 tests per day during the next two months.  CPL worked with two long time Garland medical providers, Dr. Duane Hinshaw and Dr. David Carlson, to provide sample collection services for this program.  Between the coordinated efforts of CPL, Dr. Hinshaw, Dr. Carlson and the City, a community COVID-19 testing program is set to kick off June 2 and run through July 2020.

The community testing program provides COVID-19 (PCR) testing free of charge to Garland residents.  This test determines if you have active COVID-19 virus at the time of the test.  It is not the antibody test to determine if you have been exposed to the virus.

To be eligible for the test, you must be a Garland resident and provide documentation of residency, such as a driver’s license or other ID with a Garland address, a Garland utility bill, or other form of identification with a Garland address when you go to the test site.  Persons being tested must also be age 2 or older.  

Locations, times and forms are available on our COVID-19 Facts and Resources page.
