City Of Amarillo Opens Drive Thru Testing for COVID-19

AMARILLO, TX – The City of Amarillo has partnered with Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center
to provide drive-thru testing for COVID-19. Testing began on Friday (March 27).

Individuals who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 are encouraged to call the Amarillo Public
Health Department at 806-378-6300. If the symptoms warrant a test, they will then be directed to the
drive-thru facility for testing.

“We’ve been working around the clock for several days to get these tests in place and the facility set up
for this program,” said Amarillo Mayor Ginger Nelson. “We are finally seeing a good supply of tests coming
into our region, and we want to get them out to those that need them as quickly as possible.”

The city hopes to operate the facility from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday depending on the
continuing availability of tests. Any time the facility is not operating, Public Health Staff members will still be available to assist callers with alternatives.

“We’re very excited to see testing options increasing throughout the region,” said Amarillo Director of
Public Health Casie Stoughton. “Our staff and our great partners at Texas Tech have been waiting for
this moment. We’re ready to go.”

Potter County, the Amarillo Fire Department and the Amarillo Police Department are also providing
assistance with the drive-thru testing process.
