The Houston Health Department will soon open a giant COVID-19 testing center at the site of a former Dave & Buster's near the Galleria, the latest addition of COVID headlines reminiscent of a pre-apocalyptic tragicomedy.
Workers at the site, located at 6010 Richmond Ave., will administer tests from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily, according to the health department. The site opens for the first time Thursday morning. A second new testing site in the Kingwood Community Center at 4102 Rustic Woods Dr. also opens Thursday with the same hours. The sites are expected to remain open until at least the end of January.
