Wylie Fire-Rescue last week administered, or helped to administer, almost 500 COVID-19 tests to nursing home residents and staff to fulfill a directive issued by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
The governor issued an order on May 11 for public health authorities to test nursing home and residents. Those authorities were Texas Division of Emergency Management, Texas Commission on Fire Prevention, Texas Health and Human Services Commission and Texas Department of State Health Services.
