UPDATED: Prince William County officials have canceled scheduled free COVID-19 tests Monday evening and all day Tuesday due to the inclement weather expected with the onset of Tropical Storm Isaias, county officials announced Monday afternoon.
Testing was to occur at 5:30 p.m. tonight, Monday, Aug. 3, at Splashdown Water Park. That has been canceled, according to a 3 p.m. announcement from county officials.
Testing will be canceled on Tuesday due to the tropical storm.
Testing will resume on Wednesday at the following times and places:
1:30 p.m.: Dumfries-Triangle Rescue Squad Facility, 3800 Graham Park Road, Triangle, Va. 22172
5:30 p.m.: Metz Middle School, 9950 Wellington Road, Manassas, Va. 20110
More information about testing and the county's response to COVID-19 is available at pwcgov.org/COVID19.
Prince William County is using federal COVID-19 relief funding to conduct the free testing at multiple locations around the county, a strategy that is hoped to be more accessible to residents than the larger-scale testing that occurred earlier in the pandemic, according to county officials.
Participants must provide their full name, telephone number and a home or work address in Prince William County, the City of Manassas, and the City of Manassas Park to receive a COVID test as well as the results, according to a county news release.
