SAN ANTONIO — Southwest ISD has partnered with Curative to offer free, non-invasive saliva testing for COVID-19 for all community members.

KENS 5 reported on Curative in September when the company offered free coronavirus testing to other neighborhoods in San Antonio, on the southside as well as on the westside.

They set up two walk-up sites at the Collins Gardens Library parking lot as well as the Las Palmas Library parking lot.

Curative's walk-up and self-administered oral COVID-tests were also offered along with testing for Influenza A and B.

There's no word on whether they are still offering the flu tests along with the COVID-19 tests. For other testing sites, click here.
