Since Feb. 2, Round Rock ISD has begun to give free drive-through COVID-19 testing to all staff and students. Testing is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and all appointments must be scheduled beforehand through the Round Rock ISD COVID-19 Testing Form. 

“One of our responsibilities is to keep our building open for students and staff but make sure it’s safe,” Dr. Acosta said. “The more we can test, the more we can ensure the safety of the campus.” 

This comes at a time when Austin is in stage four COVID-19 risk level, making it vital to have testing quick and available, but public health officials believe Austin could move back up to stage five soon.

 “Particularly given the presence of a more contagious variant in our community, we would like individuals to continue to take protective actions,” MS System Medical Director for the City of Austin Dr. Mark Escott said. “We have been successful because of the choices the community has made to be safe and follow the data-driven risk guidelines.” 

Currently, there are 24 active cases of COVID-19 in RRISD and zero active cases of Covid-19 at Westwood.
