Dear Members,


The State of Texas, Governor Abbott, and the Texas Department of Emergency Management, has invited the Greater Port Arthur Chamber of Commerce to participate in a pilot program which will provide FREE BinaxNow COVID-19 rapid tests to small businesses.


Please notify us if your small business would like to participate in receiving free test kits with which to provide voluntary testing of your employees. To receive a kit, your business must name at least one or more employees as the Test Administrator. We will then help your Test Administrator register and guide them through the documents and required testing, which is required by the State of Texas participate in this free program.


As part of the Chamber mission, we are here to inform and assist our members, the local community, and the region. Please call Joe Tant, Financial/Administrative Manager for the Greater Port Arthur Chamber of Commerce.  He is also the Project Manager for this program and can be reached at (409) 963-1107 to set up an appointment so your business can begin the process.


We were honored to be chosen and this will help our business community assist in reducing the spread of the pandemic. We look forward to hearing from you.
