The Legacy Stadium site, located at 1830 Katyland Dr, has been designated for testing at-risk individuals with an official notification from a health official. The site will not be set up for random testing. Individuals directed to the site for testing will remain in their vehicles. Tests, which consist of a nasal swab, will be administered by outside health departments. However, medical counseling and services will not be provided at the site.
The drive-thru site at Legacy Stadium will be secured by Katy ISD PD, as well as local, state and federal law enforcement in order to manage traffic, and allow individuals possessing a notification from a health official access to the site. The site is not officially operational at this time. However, health officials will notify the public when the site becomes open for business.

As testing kits become available, Harris and Fort Bend Counties are preparing places for first responders, hospital personnel, and other people who are symptomatic or exposed to someone with a positive COVID-19 result to be tested.
In Katy, there will be a drive-thru testing site. However local officials are waiting on the gear from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, said Rafael Lemaitre, spokesman for Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo’s office.
The county and city have planned at least two sites in Katy and the surrounding area.
City and county officials previously have said they hoped to get those sites running by the end of the week, but the continuing delay in the FEMA shipment has made it less clear that they will meet that goal.
Officials took to social media Wednesday, asking residents not to show up at those sites yet and emphasized that they only will serve people who have been through a screening process.
Right now, if you are showing symptoms, stay home and call your doctors office.
