Prince William Co. begins 2 days of COVID-19 testing

Two days of COVID-19 testing for everyone in Virginia’s Prince William County begins Monday, as the coronavirus pandemic continues.

Between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday, May 18, a testing site will be available for both drive-through and walk-up testing at the Hylton Memorial Chapel in Woodbridge.

Stonewall Jackson High School in Manassas will be a drive-through and walk-up testing site between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 19.

The testing has been arranged by the Prince William County Health District, Virginia Department of Health and Mako Medical Laboratories.

Those who receive a test will receive their results by the end of the week.

Ann Wheeler is the chairwoman of the county’s board of supervisors.

“Increasing testing in our community is a priority,” she said in a statement released Saturday.

“We know it is very important to have a full understanding of the impact of the virus in the county, so that we can keep others healthy and work towards meeting the necessary health metrics for reopening.”

Wheeler went on to thank the Board of Supervisors, the state’s department of health and Mako Medical Laboratories.

Those who visit the testing sites will be asked for their name, address, date of birth, phone number and current symptoms.
