Due to a forecast of inclement weather and out of an abundance of caution, Loudoun County is canceling the COVID-19 testing event scheduled for Tuesday, February 2, 2021, at Franklin Park. Anyone considering attending that event is encouraged to attend the COVID-19 testing event also scheduled for Franklin Park, 17501 Franklin Park Drive, Purcellville, Thursday, February 4, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., or one of the other testing events scheduled in February.
Earlier this week, the county announced it will hold twice-weekly, free drive-thru COVID-19 testing events at multiple locations throughout February. All events are scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
The testing events are open to all. There are no age or residency requirements. No prescriptions or appointments are necessary. A person does not have to exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 to be tested. A PCR test (nasal swab) will be administered, which tests for the novel coronavirus. No antibody or rapid tests will be offered. No COVID-19 vaccine will be available at these events.
More information, including the complete testing schedule for February and links to registration forms, is online at loudoun.gov/COVID19testing.
