Where can you get tested for the COVID-19 virus? This map has COVID-19 testing locations around San Antonio. Some are free, some are not. Some sites are pop-up testing locations that last from 1-2 days. This map will change as more information becomes available. The City of San Antonio announced that city-run testing sites would only test symptomatic people beginning July 6. They also asked for those people who are getting tested that have insurance to please no go to the free testing locations, so those who are uninsured can get tested.
