Austin Public Health has rolled out its new online coronavirus testing form, which was first announced a week ago and will allow people to seek a COVID-19 test without seeing a doctor.


From the city release:

The new tool allows the public to be screened for COVID-19 symptoms without having to see a physician. The form will use an algorithm based assessment to evaluate whether or not an individual should be referred to a free testing site.

The release goes on to note that completing the form does not guarantee a test for COVID-19.
