Spring 2022 Updates


Community Labs to Suspend COVID-19 Community Screening at Alamo Colleges District Support Offices on Friday, April 29

Since September 2020, Community Labs has helped San Antonio and South Texas combat the crippling effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Their weekly PCR screenings allowed us to safely re-open and keep our Alamo Colleges Family and community safe.

Very fortunately, the COVID-19 positivity rate is at an all-time low and demand for testing has dropped precipitously. As of Friday, April 29, 2022, Community Labs will no longer provide community COVID-19 screenings at the District Support Offices location.

Community COVID-19 screening sites are still open across the City of San Antonio. A complete list of those sites can be found at covid19.sanantonio.gov.

We will continue to deploy the following COVID-19 safety measures:

We want to give students the best possible service to get them connected to aid in their success while focusing on safety.

Our ability to return to on-site operations relies on each of us taking responsibility to:
  • get vaccinated or boosted
  • continue wearing masks while indoors
  • self-report COVID-19 exposure or diagnosis
  • quarantine as needed


While COVID-19 is shaping our approach, we remain committed to evaluating how we can adapt to balance the needs of our organization and students.
We are hopeful that these safety measures will allow us to have a safe return for the upcoming semester.
