Two more coronavirus testing sites are opening in the Rio Grande Valley – one in the Delta and a second location in the Mid Valley. The UT-RGV School of Medicine is leading the effort to open the Mid Valley site – this one in Mercedes.
The coronavirus testing facility in Elsa will be at Mario Leal Park. It will operate through a partnership with the cities of Edcouch and La Villa, Monte Alto ISD, Hidalgo County Precinct 1, and Emergency Diagnostic Solutions which will be conducting the tests. To be tested, you must first consult with your doctor and obtain a referral. The Elsa drive-thru site will open next Monday.
