National Guard to provide COVID-19 testing in the Valley


HARLINGEN, Texas – The National Guard is now in the Rio Grande Valley to help test residents who are feeling sick from COVID-19.

Officials are testing those who may have been exposed to the virus, they said if you have any of the COVID-19 symptoms to try to make it out to get tested.

“Of course, there is going to be pre-screening. Make sure they’ve been exposed or feel ill. To make sure the testing is done for those who truly need it,” said Josh Ramirez, Harlingen Health Director.

Testing is taking place at the Harlingen Soccer Complex from 9 A.M. until 5 P.M.
