Our acts of social solidarity will ensure that all of us come out of this safe, healthy, and positioned to fulfill our missions.
The City of Brownsville acted quickly and aggressively on the need to have a testing site available to identify those who exhibited symptoms of COVID-19. Our Brownsville drive-thru testing site launched Wednesday, March 25th at the Brownsville Sports Park. We are nearing three weeks of the drive-thru testing over 2,000 requests for testing were submitted and close to 1,020 tests were completed.
At least 50% of the individuals that have been tested are uninsured. Currently, the City of Brownsville is absorbing the cost, but as we have seen in other cities, the tendency is to have more people needing a test.
The City of Brownsville is currently accepting donations to support the COVID-19 testing kits and food banks’ Coronavirus response efforts across our Community.
Anyone wishing to help their less fortunate neighbors can donate below.
City of Brownsville wishes all of you a safe journey through the next weeks and months.
