Nuevas ubicaciones anunciadas para pruebas móviles del COVID-19 y sin cita previa
 
SAN ANTONIO (13 de mayo de 2020) - El Programa de Salud Integrada Móvil (MIH) de Metro Health y San Antonio Fire Department se ha asociado para llevar a la comunidad pruebas gratuitas y accesibles en comunidades marginadas. Dos sitios para la  prueba del COVID-19, que no requieren cita, abrirán del 14 al 16 de mayo en el Centro Comunitario Southside Lions y el Centro Comunitario Claude Black. Las primeras 150 personas que lleguen serán evaluadas. Las horas para las pruebas ahora son de 10 a.m. a 2 p.m. Las pruebas sin cita previa actualmente tienen la capacidad de evaluar solo a 150 personas por día en cada ubicación.

El Departamento de Salud y Servicios Humanos de Texas, la Fuerza de Tarea Médica de Emergencia de Texas, la División de Manejo de Emergencias de Texas y el Departamento Militar de Texas también han agregado más ubicaciones móviles de prueba COVID-19 para residentes sin costo alguno. Estas ubicaciones requieren una cita. Las citas para la ubicación del Departamento Militar de Texas se pueden hacer en www.txcovidtest.org o llamando al 512-883-2400.

Para ver todas las ubicaciones de prueba, visite el sitio web de Metro Health COVID-19. Todas las próximas ubicaciones se publicarán en este sitio web tal como están programadas. Los residentes también pueden llamar al 311 o a la línea directa de Metro Health al 210-207-5779 para solicitar más información sobre las pruebas.

Además, la Ciudad de San Antonio tiene una herramienta de autoevaluación en línea que se puede encontrar en www.sanantonio.gov/covid19. Esta herramienta no reemplaza la atención médica si una persona se siente enferma. Se debe visitar a un proveedor de atención médica si los síntomas empeoran o si las afecciones médicas subyacentes como diabetes, presión arterial alta, enfermedad pulmonar o enfermedad cardíaca son un factor en el historial médico de la persona.
