Free COVID-19 Testing Initiative for NFs and ALFs

Last updated on 7/10/2020

The Texas Division of Emergency Management has contracted with Omnicare to administer COVID-19 tests in nursing facilities (NFs) and assisted living facilities (ALFs).

Omnicare is providing point-of-care testing of staff and residents at no charge to the facility. Results are typically provided to the facility within 24 to 48 hours.

Omnicare will contact certain facilities to schedule COVID-19 testing and will provide more detail about the process at that time. Facilities can request testing by contacting their HHSC regional director if they have not been contacted by Omnicare.
