The community testing sites ensure Texans continue to have access to critical COVID-19 testing as the Delta variant spreads
HOUSTON, August 26, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nomi Health, the direct healthcare company coordinating COVID-19 testing and vaccination efforts across the country, today announced it has launched a series of community testing sites across Texas. A part of this statewide effort, Nomi Health aims to make COVID-19 testing more accessible and accommodating as demand increases and the Delta variant takes hold.
"As we face another pivotal moment in the pandemic, Texans need access to reliable, quality testing," said Harold DelasAlas, MD, PharmD, Medical Director, Nomi Health. "Drawing best practices from our work in support of local leaders, these sites provide a seamless patient experience as people seek out peace of mind as they get back to school, back to work and back to life as we knew it. Because of that, Nomi’s goal is to turn no eligible person seeking a test away."
As part of this new initiative, Nomi Health aims to continue to expand testing efforts across rural, suburban, and hard-to-reach areas over the weeks and months to come, providing Texans with easy access to testing clinics in their communities.
