Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros, has been tapped by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to facilitate a coronavirus testing site, with the hopes to process 2,000 tests a day.
According to Gov. Abbott's office, the site will be open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The site will boast eight drive-thru lanes and four walk-up lanes. No appointment is required. People may show up at their convenience and will be walked through the process of registering online.
