Rockwall County Office of Emergency Management: COVID-19 Update, Mobile Testing Friday

Mobile testing at Lake Pointe Church in Rockwall this Friday, by appointment 

ROCKWALL, TX – July 28, 2020 – The next COVID-19 test site at Lake Pointe Church will be 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Friday, July 31. The test site will be appointment only. The state is transitioning from using the National Guard to using a private contractor. Because of this transition, Rockwall County Office of Emergency Management does not currently have a link where appointments can be made. As soon as RCOEM gets a link where appointments can be made, they will post it on their facebook page and send a Nixle message (and Blue Ribbon News will share the link accordingly).

To sign up for our Nixle text messages, send a message that says “RCOEM” to 888777.

Here’s the latest COVID-19 update from the RCOEM (7/28/2020). They report that there are 716 cumulative confirmed cases, 74 estimated active cases, 625 estimated recoveries, 17 confirmed deaths, and 9404 conducted tests reported.
