A COVID-19 saliva testing site will open Monday at Dr Pepper Ballpark in Frisco, the city says.
Anyone who is interested in getting the free COVID-19 saliva test must register for an appointment online. The testing site will be open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“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 Frisco Fire EMS Battalion Chief Jake Owen. “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.”
