The Prince William Health District What You Should Know:

 

Testing Across the Commonwealth: In response to an increasing number of individuals seeking testing, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) is expanding testing events across the Commonwealth. The action comes as cases of COVID-19 are rising due to the Delta variant, a more contagious variant than the others currently circulating throughout the state. VDH has added more than 170 Community Testing Events (CTE) in September throughout the Commonwealth. Additional CTEs will be added based on community need and to reduce increasing stress on healthcare providers. 

VDH recommends the following people tested for COVID-19·       

  • People with symptoms or signs of COVID-19 regardless of vaccination status.
  • Most people who have had close contact with someone known or suspected to have COVID-19 
    •   Fully vaccinated people should be tested 3-5 days following a known exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19, even if you don’t have symptoms.
    • People who are not fully vaccinated should be tested immediately after an exposure and again at 5-7 days following exposure if the first test is negative
    •  People who tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 3 months and recovered, do not need to get tested after exposure if they do not have symptoms.

Testing Locally: For a list of all testing locations, visit the VDH website or the Department of Health & Human Services Community Based Testing website.

 

Also, you can reach out to your healthcare provider or doctor’s office for COVID-19 testing. Pharmacies offer COVID-19 testing and sell over-the-counter home testing kits.
