Here for you. And your safety | Texas Health
Texas Health is reaffirming our commitment to current masking guidelines.

It is vital that we continue to wear masks to protect our community and each other. We will continue to require employees, physicians on the medical staffs, patients and visitors to wear a mask when in all Texas Health facilities and at any Texas Health event, even if a person is vaccinated. Masks, when combined with handwashing and maintaining safe distance, have been proven to be effective at limiting the spread of COVID-19. Our guidelines remain the same to protect our patients and staff, while providing a safe environment for all. Texas Health also is continuing to screen each person entering care facilities as well as limiting visitors for the same reasons.

  • How long does it take for test results?

    Testing results varies by test type, location, and lab processing volume.

  • What if my test is positive?

    If you test positive for COVID-19 you will need to stay home, and self-isolate. This means you should avoid contact with others in your household, including pets. You should self-isolate until you meet the criteria to be around others. Talk to your doctor about when you should discontinue self-isolation.

  • What if my test is negative? 

    Even if your test is negative, you could still have COVID-19, as it can take up to 14 days from the day you were exposed before you have symptoms or a positive test result. You should self-isolate until you meet the criteria to be around others. Talk to your doctor about when you should discontinue self-isolation.
