LAKE JACKSON — As soon as Joy McKay stepped off the plane from New York, she made sure to get tested for COVID-19.

“Trying to find testing was really difficult and finally a friend suggested UTMB in Texas City,” she said. “It was the only place available — at least on a Sunday — because I wanted to land and I wanted to go get tested and not be around anything in case I carried it from the airport.”
