HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nomi Health, the direct healthcare company coordinating COVID-19 testing and vaccination efforts across the country, has launched four additional drive-thru testing sites across Texas, including new permanent locations in Frisco, League City, and Texas City. The company is also bringing a temporary testing tent to Austin for Austin City Limits (ACL) festival this weekend, offering walk-up swab rapid antigen tests for festival-goers ahead of entering the event.
“Since opening our first Texas clinic in August, we expanded to over 10 COVID-19 testing sites and we are working to ensure more people have access to hassle-free testing across the state,” said Mark Newman, Nomi Health founder and CEO. “Testing is critical as we resume any sense of normalcy, and access to testing should not depend on who you are or where you live. No one will be turned away at our sites.”
As part of this growing initiative to bring testing solutions to communities in need, Nomi Health recently partnered with Frisco ISD to make sure students and staff have quick and convenient access to free PCR and antigen testing in the community with a priority access lane.
