Frisco Chamber To Distribute COVID-19 Test Kits To Local Businesses

Texas Department of Emergency Management (TDEM), in partnership with the Frisco Chamber of Commerce, as well as other chambers of commerce throughout the state, has created a program to distribute COVID-19 nasal swab rapid test kits. Each kit has 40 tests and one bottle of solution. Each kit must be maintained in one location due to supply constrictions within each kit. These kits are available to qualifying businesses in the Frisco area while supplies last.

To be considered to receive a test kit or kits, please fill out this form. If your business qualifies, we will begin notifying eligible businesses with further directions, including a requirement for one person within the organization to complete an online training and a commitment to reporting to TDEM as test are administered.

 

Once the information is received, the Frisco Chamber will qualify the business and, if notified, one employee from the organization must take an online training course and pass a test, certifying them as a test administrator for employees within their organization. This certificate must be provided to the Frisco Chamber prior to allowing the pick up of the kits.

Questions? For questions, email testing@friscochamber.com.

Texas Department of State Health Services

Please check the Texas Department of State Health Services website for a list of vaccine providers. The Frisco Fire Department has set up an information-only phone line at 972-292-6306. The message will be updated as the Frisco Fire Department learns more about vaccine distribution.

City of Frisco Vaccine Hub

The City of Frisco Vaccine Hub is no longer in operation.

Denton County establishes Vaccine Interest Portal 

Denton County's Vaccine Webpage  offers community members an opportunity to verify eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine under the current Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) eligibility requirements.  Follow this link to find Denton County's Vaccine Interest Portal.   Please note:  Denton County advises your submission does not schedule you for DCPH vaccine clinic. Vaccine demand and availability will impact how long it will take for you to receive your invitation for an appointment.

Collin County sets up wait list for COVID-19 vaccine

Collin County launched a vaccine wait list on January 5, 2021, for Collin County residents who meet Texas Department of State Health Services Phase 1A and 1B categories for receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. The online form will take requests in the order received, let the registrant know where they are in line for the vaccine, then notify them when vaccines become available from the county’s health department and schedule appointments.  Read additional details from Collin County.

TSA-E Hospitalization Rates and Roll Back

Where do we stand now?

Public Health Awareness Dashboard

What does TSA-E stand for?  

  • Trauma Service Area.  The ‘E’ represents the North Texas Region, which includes Frisco.  Our city is in two counties, Collin and Denton.  TSA-E includes 19 area counties with a total population of approximately 8 million and 16,890 staffed hospital beds. 

What happened when we (TSA-E) reached a COVID-19 hospitalization rate of 15%?

  • Businesses must limit their occupancy rate to 50%, per the Governor’s Executive Order 32 (issued October 7, 2020).    
  • Hospitals must postpone all surgeries and procedures not considered “medically necessary” to diagnose or correct a serious medical condition or preserve life, per the Governor’s Executive Order 31 (issued September 17, 2020).   
  • Hospitals must reserve at least 10-percent of its hospital capacity to treat COVID-19 patients. A hospital may reserve less than 10-percent of its capacity for COVID-19 patients if it belongs to a ‘hospital system’ (more than one hospital) where the cumulative capacity reserved throughout the system is at least 10 percent, per the Governor’s Executive Order 31 (issued Sept. 17, 2020).   

When can businesses go back to operating at 75% capacity?

  • Not until the TSA-E’s COVID-19 hospitalization rate is below 15% for 7 consecutive days.
