Today's the last day of Coronavirus testing at the University of Dallas in Irving. By Monday, the test site will be moved to Mesquite.

It's been a month since the University of Dallas test site opened. Now, it's moving again. Tests will be given up through 1 p.m. today at the campus on Northgate Drive in parking lot B.

This weekend, everything will be moved to Eastfield College on La Prada Drive near I-30. Beginning Monday morning at 7:00 a.m. the testing will resume with tents set up in Parking Lot 8.

The requirements remain the same. You must be a Dallas County resident, age 65 or older, and you'll need to verify that.

Tests are also available for those who have chronic health issues like diabetes, asthma or heart issues.

Also welcome are first responders, DART drivers, healthcare workers or workers in the grocery or other essential retail businesses.

And you can get the test if you're showing symptoms. And even if you're not, if you've been in large group settings within the previous 15 days.
