Covid-19 Resources in Frisco
All Storage Online | August 21, 2020 @ 12:00 AM
The city of Frisco and the surrounding communities in both Collin and Denton Counties are working together diligently to curb the spread of COVID-19. That includes making testing accessible, creating resources for those who have been impacted, and taking steps to ensure that these Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex suburbs can open safely.
As a local business, All Storage believes in doing our part to support our Frisco neighbors by taking extra steps in prioritizing our tenants health and well being. We also believe in supporting our community members by connecting you to resources that can help during this difficult time.
The following list includes information for those living in Frisco and the surrounding area. Whether you’re looking for guidance on how to get a COVID-19 test, what local parks are currently open, or where to get rental assistance, we hope that the details and links below can point you in the right direction.
Free COVID-19 Testing
For those who have never been tested for COVID-19 before, the question of cost is a common one. Is the test covered by insurance? How much should one expect to pay out of pocket? Fortunately, there is free COVID-19 testing in Frisco at the Dr. Pepper Ballpark. Located at 7300 RoughRiders Trail, this testing site is open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. The testing center uses a self-administered salvia test and provides results within 48-96 hours. Tests are available for all North Texas residents, and the testing center plans to be open throughout at least the end of August. Make an appointment online if you’d like to utilize this service.
COVID-19 Shopping Hours in Frisco
A large number of grocery stores in Frisco and other nearby Dallas Fort Worth communities are offering special shopping hours for seniors and other at-risk populations. The list is lengthy (Albertsons, Kroger, Market Street, Walmart, Aldi, Costco, and Target are all on it) and likely includes your favorite grocery outlet. Pharmacies such as Walgreens and budget stores including Dollar General are also included. Hours are typically in the early morning for about two hours starting at 7 a.m. Contact your local grocery store to confirm availability.
Parks and Library Hours
Good news for bookworms—the Frisco Public Library is open and operating at 50 percent capacity with special hours. Current hours are 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Some services may not be available, and patrons are encouraged to practice social distancing while browsing the shelves.
If you’re looking for outdoor recreation, you’ll be happy to know that as of July 27, a number of Frisco parks are open. The Frisco Athletic Center is open, as is the Outdoor Water Park. The FAC Fun Club and Zone and the FAC Indoor Aquatic Center are both closed. Those who are not comfortable enjoying these facilities in person should check out the event calendar for online programming.
Food and Rental Assistance
Frisco Family Services operates a food pantry and also offers emergency financial assistance that can help with rent, utilities, affording medication, and other expenses. If you are looking for these services, you can make an appointment to meet with a case manager to see what you qualify for. You’ll need identification, a lease agreement, copies of bills, proof of income, and any paperwork you have documenting financial hardship.
Frisco residents who wish to help their neighbors who may be struggling financially due to COVID-19 can donate home goods to the charity’s resale store or donate funds.
Grants for Individuals and Businesses
Grants are available for Frisco families and business owners. One option for families is the Collin Cares Economic Recovery and Assistance grant which provides financial assistance with housing, food, and other expenses. Local business owners can look to the City of Frisco/Collin Small Business Grant Program which is tailored towards helping struggling businesses. This includes both essential and nonessential businesses and is open to those that have already received PPP funding.
