DC, Md., Va. close COVID vaccination and testing sites; Fairfax Co. schools close testing sites

D.C., Maryland and Virginia shut down COVID-19 testing and vaccination sites Monday ahead of the winter storm.

In D.C., all testing sites have been canceled due to winter weather.

The Virginia Department of Health said it closed all of its Community Vaccination Centers on Monday. Affected sites in Northern Virginia include the former Lord & Taylor store in Tysons Corner, the former Home Gallery store in Fredericksburg and the old Gander Mt. building in Woodbridge.

Anyone with appointments at those vaccine centers will be notified of the cancellation and can visit the Virginia Department of Health website to reschedule.

The health department said it will decide Monday afternoon whether to open the sites Tuesday.

Fairfax County Public Schools made changes to its COVID-19 testing sites. Initially, the school system said the sites would be open. Now they are closed.

The Maryland Department of Health closed a number of state-run testing and vaccination sites. The department said people should make sure any testing or vaccine site is open before visiting Monday, but announced the following sites will be closed:

  • Annapolis — corner of Bladen and Calvert streets
  • Anne Arundel County — Anne Arundel Medical Center
  • Baltimore City — State Center
  • Harford County — UM Upper Chesapeake Health
  • Prince George’s County — City of Praise Family Ministries

There may be changes to testing and vaccine operations Tuesday as well, Maryland’s health department warned.
