A new COVID-19 testing site is open in Tarrant County.

The new testing site is at the South Campus of Tarrant County College, on Southeast Pkwy in Arlington,

Public Health Director Vinny Taneja says this site utilizes a saliva test, which is more popular than the nasal swab.

Taneja says in order to test as many people as possible, the agency is partnering with many different labs some that send samples out locally, while others that send them out of state.
