Following a significant reduction in COVID cases in the area, the testing facility at Texan Stadium will scale back its increased days of operation. While the program expanded to include Monday and Tuesday, it will once again operate from Wednesday to Saturday, effective immediately. With this update, testing will now take place from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
COVID testing provided by GeneIQ at Old Texan Fieldhouse, located next to Northwest ISD Stadium, is now available 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. Students, families, staff and community members can all receive COVID testing in the parking lot in front of Old Texan Fieldhouse without exiting their vehicles. All testing is administered by GeneIQ personnel, while Northwest ISD is only providing its location for use as the testing facility.
The PCR testing returns results in just a few days. Patients with symptoms will have the option of a regular COVID-19 PCR test or a combination test called COVID+, that tests for COVID-19, Flu A & B, and RSV.
Old Texan Fieldhouse is located at 2156 Texan Drive in Justin, in front of Old Texan Stadium. The yellow gates that close the parking lot will remain open during testing hours. Those receiving a test must enter through the intersection of Texan Drive and S.H. 114, next to Northwest ISD Stadium, and then exit through the controlled light at the intersection of S.H. 114 and Harriet Creek Drive.
