Loudoun County will host two free drive-thru testing events for COVID-19 on Saturday, November 21, 2020, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The testing events will take place at two locations simultaneously:
Saturday’s testing event will be the third date this month on which the county has offered free COVID-19 testing. On November 10, 1,170 people received tests and on November 14, another 1,231 people received tests.
The November 21 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 in order to be tested. A PCR test (nasal swab) will be administered at these testing events, which tests for the novel coronavirus. Results will be available within a week. No antibody or rapid tests will be offered.
To help reduce wait times, people who plan to attend the testing event are strongly encouraged to complete a registration form for each person who will be receiving a test prior to arriving at the testing site. The registration form is required and asks for general demographics and contact information, including name, date of birth, address, phone number and current symptoms, if any.
The fillable form may be downloaded, filled out, printed and completed forms should be brought with you to the testing site. Forms will also be available at the testing site for individuals who do not have access to a printer or otherwise are unable to complete the forms in advance. The forms are also available at loudoun.gov/COVID19testing.
Loudoun County encourages residents to stay informed about COVID-19.
