Texans can call 844-90-TEXAS and select Option 3 to schedule a mobile vaccine clinic to vaccinate groups of friends, families, employees, volunteers, and more. Homebound Texans are also encouraged to call the hotline and select Option 1 to request a state mobile vaccination team to visit their home.

Although City offices are open, many City departments utilize WaitWhile to manage appointments which allow visitors to arrive, check-in from their mobile device, and wait in their vehicle until staff is ready to receive them for the appointment. For current COSM operating procedures listed by department, click here.
Until further notice, group meetings will still be held virtually.
Under the rules of Governor Abbott’s Executive Order GA-36, government entities may no longer mandate masks.
The testing is provided at no cost to the individual and is availableto anyone, whether or not they reside in Hays County. Curative is now billing private insurance companies for testing services, but there will be no out-of-pocket cost to the individual being tested. Those without insurance will not be turned away and will receive the test for free.
Over 10,000 tests have been administered at the San Marcos Curative test site since testing began in October 2020. These numbers do not include testing done at Texas State University and do include individuals who do not reside in Hays County.
