Galveston County COVID test, treatment program

People who are sick from COVID-19 and experiencing mild to moderate symptoms may take advantage of local test and treat programs available at Galveston County Health District (GCHD), UTMB Health and local urgent cares.

The health district is launching its COVID-19 test and treat program today.

“It is important people know that if you are sick, there are test and treatment options readily available in the community,” said Dr. Philip Keiser, GCHD CEO and Galveston County local health authority. “We’re not seeing many people take advantage of this.”

Individuals who are experiencing mild to moderate symptoms that started within the past five days and have a recent positive COVID-19 test result are eligible for the program. Individuals will be tested first to confirm they do have COVID-19 and then will be screened to see if they are eligible for treatment.

“This program is designed for those who are already sick from COVID-19 and need treatment,” said Ashley Sciba, MPH, BSN, RN, Galveston County Health District director of community health services. “Treatment will be available for those at an increased risk of developing severe disease or hospitalization.”

The testing service is free and there is no out of pocket cost to the individual to fill the prescription. 

Walk-ins are welcome and appointments are not needed. 

For more information, please call 409.938.7221 or 409.938.2293, or email chs@gchd.org.
