Katy ISD has teamed up with RediMD and UTMB-Galveston to offer district employees free COVID-19 testing.

The testing site, which is only available to district staff, is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. It's at the Agriculture Sciences Center at 5825 Katy Hockley Cut-off Road in Katy. 

Employees don't need to make an appointment to get the test. More details can be found on the district's Smart Restart Return to Work page.

According to the district, employees will get results in 48 hours.

The following employees can be tested:

  • Katy ISD employees potentially exposed to a positive case at work or outside of work

  • Katy ISD employees who are uninsured with Katy ISD (no family or spouses).

If you're going, make sure to take your district ID with you.
