KVUE β€” As more Central Texans look to get tested for COVID-19 symptoms, one local company is stepping up to the plate to help.

Remedy, an Austin-based telemedicine startup, launched a drive-through COVID-19 testing facility on Sunday.

But CEO and Founder of Remedy Dr. Gabrysch said not everyone can just show up.

"We're asking you to go to our website, you essentially book a visit. It's super simple. You're talking to a medical provider who will then screen you and listen to your symptoms and then if you need testing of any kind you can come to this facility and have drive-thru testing performed," said Dr. Gabrysch.

Dr. Gabrysch said healthcare providers are becoming more able to provide testing, which will help to eliminate some of the frustration behind the virus.
