The Texas Military Department has assured us that the “walk-up” method of COVID-19 testing is the most efficient process for testing a large volume of individuals, as pre-registration is not required and can be handled on-site. We thank you for your patience and diligence as your local and state agencies collaborate to provide our community with the largest testing capability possible with available resources.
