Texas Case Counts
If you have symptoms or had a known exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, you should be tested, regardless of your vaccination status. There are multiple Testing Options available to Texans. Also, the different Types of COVID-19 Tests look for different things, including current infection versus past infection.
People can get tested for COVID 19 at public testing sites and drive‑thru locations in certain parts of Texas. Self-test kits are also available and can be performed at home or anywhere else.
Self-Testing at Home
A self-test produces fast results and can be taken anywhere. You can use self-tests if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to someone sick with COVID-19, or even if you don’t have symptoms. Call your local pharmacy to ask about whether they have self-tests available.
Learn more about Self-Testing (CDC). Visit FDA’s website for a list of authorized tests. Some self-tests may have age limitations.
If you take a self-test and get a positive result, tell the people you might have seen recently and find recommendations for quarantine and isolation (CDC). Call your healthcare provider if you have questions or concerns about symptoms, or if you are at higher risk for developing severe illness.
Texas COVID-19 Test Collection Sites

“We are not afraid to be the first”: the St Petersburg University Testing Center promotes the Russian language around the world
Read about it in the interview i. about. Director of the Center for Language Testing at St Petersburg University Dmitry Ptyushkin.
St Petersburg University has been involved in language testing for over 20 years. Please tell us how many such centers are already open today?
Currently, 70 St Petersburg University testing centers operate in 30 countries around the world, from Buenos Aires to Tokyo. Every year our geography covers new countries and cities. For example, in 2017 we did not work in Denmark, now the University has opened two centers there. This year, the first test sessions will take place in Hungary, France and Romania. The number of testing centers in Brazil has increased: if last year they were in three partner language schools, now they are in six. At the same time, we are trying to ensure that activity in the previously created centers not only does not fade away, but develops: it is important for us that an increasing number of people participate in test sessions. Since 2016, the number of people tested abroad has doubled. But there are also about 50 centers in Russia, and besides, we test quite a lot directly at St. Petersburg University
~140090,014 foreign students passed the exam in Russian as a foreign language at St Petersburg University.
How many centers were there before? When and in connection with what did they begin to open actively?
Activities to create them have been actively carried out for the last three years — in 2015 there were only 11 such centers, and the tests themselves have not been updated for years. For example, in one of the tasks there was a question: "Tell us what Russia will be like in 2015." All this is morally obsolete, and we decided to put this system in order. Some believe that the state testing system is something stuck in the past, uninteresting and intended only so that people can go to study in Russia. We decided to fundamentally change the approach and put at the forefront, first of all, the motivating factor - to perceive the test not as a protective measure, but as a stimulating one. This is a means to test yourself and believe in yourself.
It's hard to say whether it was easy for us at first or not. For the first six months, employees of the SPbU Language Testing Center sent emails every day with proposals for cooperation, and at first no one responded to them. But at some point, ten answers came in two days, and our activities began to develop. We have always tried to act in such a way that representatives of foreign testing centers see us not only once a year during a test session, but constantly keep in touch with us and participate in a methodological exchange. Our task is to provide our partners with a full range of services. It is important that from the moment when the student just started learning Russian, until entering the exam, he and his teacher receive everything necessary to prepare well for testing.
The university maintains its overseas testing centres. We edit the educational programs of the centers, hold seminars for teachers (there were 53 last year alone) and students. We have prepared open tests that anyone can download. The SPbU Language Testing Center tries to respond to all emerging questions so that people feel supported and understand that the University is not located somewhere far away in Russia, but very close and ready to meet them halfway. This attitude does not go unnoticed, so they began to contact us more and more often. Now the University is showing quite a high interest all over the world: if last year we signed ten cooperation agreements, then this year we have already signed the same number, and several more are under consideration. I think this work will be brought to its logical conclusion and this year the test sessions will be held in new foreign testing centers.
How many testing centers are typical for Russian and foreign universities? In your opinion, does St Petersburg University have a lot of them, or is it still not enough for such a large scientific and educational center?
I can say right away that people who study Russian as a foreign language are real fans. Moreover, it is people who are the most valuable thing in all testing centers at St Petersburg University. You can represent a large organization, but not be interested in running tests, and therefore not succeed. But there are small language schools or children's leisure centers where interested teachers work. Such schools are attended by many students who want to test their knowledge of the Russian language. And this is often more important, so we first of all believe in a person.
If you look at the information in open sources, St Petersburg University is the leader in Russia in terms of the number of testing centers, but as far as foreign organizations are concerned, the numbers here will be different. Take, for example, the University of Cambridge - its test results are recognized by 20,000 organizations around the world, and five million people take an English exam every year, and it has much more testing centers. Or the German Examination Center ÖSD, which has 400 centers around the world, and it's not even a leader in the field of German. Therefore, St Petersburg University certainly has something to strive for.
Unfortunately, the quality of service provided by the TORFL system did not meet the needs for many years, but now it is one of the priorities of our center. Testing cannot be regarded as a kind of philological event, it is a full-fledged service, and an important one at that: in Poland, obtaining a certificate entitles you to a significant increase in salary, in Greece it is recognized in a number of organizations and also allows you to receive benefits. I also note that earlier work was not always carried out related to obtaining recognition of the TORFL certificate in other countries and tracking the degree of its recognition. But now the University is actively engaged in this. Rector of St Petersburg University Nikolay Kropachev discussed testing issues during a meeting with the President of Iceland, in addition, we are currently working on the recognition of the TORFL certificate in Iran. With the participation of St. Petersburg University in Italy, this document was recognized at the state level and entered into a special list of the Ministry of Education, so now it can be used for academic, work and other purposes. For the scale of Europe, St Petersburg University has few testing centers, but the degree of intensity with which we create them allows us to say that in a few years there will be more than 100 of them. And this will already be a significant result that has never been achieved by any Russian organization.
Among the testing centers in our country and in the whole world, there is certainly high competition. How do University centers exist and develop in this environment?
In addition to the state system of testing Russian as a foreign language, there are a number of similar systems in other states - both multilingual, where the Russian language is one of the components, and national. I can say that some of them are better recognized in their countries than TORFL. However, it is important to look at the content of the test, what exactly it checks. For example, China has its own national testing system for Russian as a foreign language, and it does not have a “Speaking” subtest, so oral speech is not tested at all. But in the test there is a lot of country studies and you can learn, for example, about the Ob River. The requirements that apply to the level of knowledge are not always obvious. There is a pan-European scale of language competencies, the requirements of which must be met, and colleagues, in my opinion, do not always withstand this. Somewhere we have a harder time, somewhere easier, but joint hard work leads to the fact that the number of test-takers is growing, which means that our partners are doing their job well. We do not have a single case when the St Petersburg University center closed or stopped working.
What work is being done to set up new centres?
Large enough. We are trying to enter new markets and are never afraid to be the first, to go where the demand for the Russian language is not obvious. Four people came to the seminar for teachers, organized in Iceland by the St Petersburg University Language Testing Center — it seems that this is not enough, but there are simply no more Russian specialists in this country. It is this approach and the constant desire to develop that attract partners to us. The number of applications to the University related to offers of cooperation in testing has increased. And we still write letters, but they answer us much more often. This is an indicator of good work, while we see how the recognition of the TORFL certificate affects: in Italy, the number of people who want to learn Russian has increased significantly. But in China, there is already enough work, since many go to study in Russia.
An important circumstance is that St Petersburg University recognizes a certificate in Russian as a foreign language - this document gives additional points and significantly helps those entering the state line.
