People who want to get tested for the coronavirus for free can do so Thursday. 

The Texas Department of Emergency Management will offer free, drive-up testing between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Thursday at Fire Station No. 1, 823 26th St., according to the city. 

People don't need to schedule an appointment in advance and don't need to be a Galveston resident. People will need to show photo identification. 

People should enter the fire station from Ball Street, according to the city. 

As of Friday, there were 881 active cases of COVID-19 in Galveston County, according to the Galveston County Health District.
