In a partnership between the state services, the local regional advisory councils, the Texas Emergency Medical Task Force and the Delta County Office of Emergency Management, free mobile Covid-19 testing will be offered again in Delta County on June 8 at the Cooper ISD Elementary School’s west parking lot from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

COOPER — This testing is part of the initiative from Gov. Greg Abbott to increase Covid-19 testing statewide. The teams will be focusing on both rural areas that have not had access to testing and identified hot-spots where additional testing capability is needed.

There is no cost for the test received at one of these sites; all tests will be scheduled in advance, and patients will be given appointments for their test; residents may not be able to register until late this evening or early Wednesday morning.

Residents may register to be tested via phone or online by calling 512-883-2400 or visiting To be eligible for testing, residents must have one or more symptoms of Covid-19.
