Austin, TX (STL.News) Texas Governor Greg Abbott today announced that the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) has secured an extension of four Community Based Testing Sites (CBTS) in Houston and Harris County through January 31, 2021 or until the sites reach maximum capacity of conducting 50,000 COVID-19 tests. The current round of CBTS testing began for both Harris County and the City of Houston in August.
