New COVID-19 testing site to open in Pflugerville

A new COVID-19 testing site is coming to Travis County next week.

The drive-thru site, located at Heritage Park at 901 Old Austin Hutto Road in Pflugerville, will open on Feb. 14 and run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

This testing expansion is possible thanks to cooperation between Austin Public Health (APH), the City of Pflugerville and Spartan Medical.

Registration for the site works as follows:

Step 1: Go to https://cov19.health/#/ and register as a “new patient.”
Step 2: Type APFLGVHP as the Office Location Code and fill out the log-in information.
Step 3: Select “Client Bill.” The tests are free and insurance is not needed.
Step 4: You will receive verification through email or text.

Note: Results from these tests are provided by the contractor, Spartan Medical, NOT by Austin Public Health.
