The COVID-19 vaccine has started being distributed in select settings across the U.S., but that doesn't mean the pandemic is over, and if you suspect you might have COVID-19, testing is still available.

If you feel like you are having any of the symptoms below you may want to go get yourself tested:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Fatigue
  • Body Aches
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Sore Throat
  • Headaches
  • Nausea/ Vomiting/ Diarrhea
  • Nasal Congestion
  • Loss of Taste and or Smell

You can go get tested for free today (Mon. Dec. 14) and tomorrow between 9 am and 7 pm at The Killeen Special Events Center located at 3301 S. W.S. Young Drive in Killeen.

You have to register online before you show up and you can do it by clicking on this link.  

As I mentioned above, the pandemic isn't over, so please continue doing your part to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep our hospitals from being anymore overwhelmed than they already are.

Be mindful and considerate of others, and wear a mask out in public. Be sure to wash or sanitize your hands, especially before you might touch your face. When possible, stay home, or if you're out in public give people as much space as you can, especially if they're not helping by wearing a mask.

Health officials are even going so far as to strongly recommend limiting holiday gatherings to members of your immediate household, which is a good tip if you don't want to inadvertently infect a member of your family with a compromised immune system, an elder, or anyone else who could fall victim to the world COVID-19 complications.

Basically, be safe, smart, and courteous, and we'll get through this together.
