Free, COVID-19 saliva testing site to open in Frisco August 3

(July 31, 2020) A COVID-19 saliva testing site will open in Frisco on Monday, August 3 at the Dr Pepper Ballpark, 7300 RoughRiders Trail.  The free, saliva tests will be administered Mondays – Saturdays, 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.  Testing is open to all North Texans, regardless of county or city residency.  However, anyone interested in getting a free COVID-19 test is required to register for an appointment at Texas.curativeinc.com Frisco registration will open at 8 a.m. on Saturday, August 1. (Please note:  The city/town names of registration sites are not in alphabetical order.)

“There’s no fee or insurance required, and you don’t need to be a Frisco resident.  Anyone is welcome; however, participants must register online to reserve a time slot,” said Battalion Chief Jake Owen, Frisco Fire EMS. “Also, do not eat, drink or use mouthwash 20 minutes before taking a swab collection.  For many folks, this process may be more appealing than a nasal swab.”

The FDA-approved, test is an observed self-collected test. Participants will be provided testing materials and instructions when they arrive at the testing site and the sample collection will be self-administered.  Follow this link for video instructions showing what participants can expect.  

Results will be received within 48 – 96 hours.  The Curative Korva lab reports its test has an 89-percent accuracy rate. ‘Positive’ tests will be reported to county health departments. 

Access the Dr Pepper Ballpark from the Dallas North Tollway, Dallas Parkway or Parkwood Drive. Follow this link for a map. The Frisco location is one of three regional COVID-19 saliva testing sites being setup in North Texas.  The Frisco testing site is expected to be operational through the end of August.
