Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Division of Emergency Management are launching a Covid-19 Rapid Testing Pilot Program for front line workers at Texas small businesses.

Through the program TDEM says it aims to provide local Chamber of Commerce organizations with Covid 19 testing supplies that will then allocate the supplies to local small businesses that choose to participate.

Participating Chamber of Commerce organizations include the Amarillo Chamber of Commerce and the Amarillo Economic Development Corporation.

Small businesses interested in participating in the program can contact their local Chamber for more information.
