EL PASO- In anticipation of the Thanksgiving holiday, State Rep Lina Ortega is working with local and state partners to provide an extra opportunity for El Pasoans to get a free COVID-19 test.

Historically, El Paso has experienced a spike in new cases after the holidays. The threat of the further uncontrolled spread of the disease over Thanksgiving break is especially concerning considering the recent record-breaking numbers of new COVID-19 cases and associated hospitalizations.

"Our most trusted health care providers have made it clear that our health care system is under significant strain due to the rapid and consistent increase of COVID-19," said Rep Ortega. "If El Pasoans plan to gather for a holiday, we should do so as safely as possible. Getting tested and knowing your results before being around others will help keep you and your loved ones safe."

This event is open to all members of the public with or without symptoms, and participants will not need to provide proof of health insurance or a doctor's order to get tested.
