Loudoun Continues Free COVID-19 Testing Events in December

Posted on November 29, 2021 at 10:24 AM by Nancy McCormick

Loudoun County will continue to offer free, weekly COVID-19 testing events through December. The drive-thru events are scheduled for Tuesdays, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., at various locations across the county:

In addition, the county will hold the final November COVID-19 testing event Tuesday, November 30, 2021, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at Franklin Park, 17501 Franklin Park Drive, Purcellville

The testing events are free and 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 to be tested. A PCR test (nasal swab) will be administered, which tests for the novel coronavirus. No antibody or rapid tests will be offered. No COVID-19 vaccine will be available at these events.

When to Get Tested

Public health officials encourage anyone, regardless of vaccination status, who thinks they may have been exposed to COVID-19 to get tested as well as anyone exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, such as fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue and a new loss of taste or smell.

In addition, anyone who traveled for the Thanksgiving holiday or plans to travel for the December holidays and gather with family and friends is also encouraged to get tested a few days before and after traveling or gathering in groups.

Learn more about COVID-19 testing on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's website

Registration Form

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. Questions about insurance may be ignored.

The fillable form may be downloaded, filled out and printed. 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.

Other Testing Sites

In addition to the COVID-19 testing events hosted by Loudoun County, there are other testing locations and providers in Loudoun and the region. Visit loudoun.gov/covid19testing to find locations near you. 

COVID-19 Vaccine

The Loudoun County Health Department encourages everyone age 5 and older who has not already received a COVID-19 vaccination to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Vaccine is widely available from many providers in Loudoun, such as medical offices and pharmacies including, but not limited to, CVS, Giant Food, Harris Teeter, Safeway, Walgreens, Walmart and Wegmans. These locations have the benefit of being able to also provide flu vaccine at the same time, which is recommended by the Health Department. Visit vaccines.gov to find the vaccination site nearest to you.

Protect Yourself and Others

In addition to vaccination, to help curb the increase in COVID-19 cases that Loudoun County has been experiencing and to help prevent the newly identified Omicron variant or other new COVID-19 variants from impacting Loudoun County, the Health Department recommends everyone:

  • Wear a mask in indoor public settings.
  • Stay 6 feet away from people who do not live in your household.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes.
  • Wash your hands frequently.

Loudoun County Update

  • Booster Eligibility Expanded: As we reported earlier today, following federal and state authorization, Loudoun County is now offering COVID-19 vaccine booster appointments to all adults at the county’s Dulles Town Center clinic. Be advised that appointments for boosters are limited through November. 
    • Individuals 18 and older who received their second dose in the two-dose series of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine at least six months ago are eligible for the booster. People who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago are already recommended to receive a booster dose. 
    • Appointments continue to be available at the Dulles Town Center clinic for anyone 5 and older who has not received their first or second dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Loudoun County Health Director Dr. David Goodfriend says the county continues to see substantial transmission of the virus in the community, which is largely driven by infected children, so vaccinating children 5 and older as soon as possible remains a critical phase in the county's ongoing efforts to protect Loudoun residents and help bring an end to the pandemic.
    • In addition to the Dulles Town Center clinic, COVID-19 vaccines are available from many providers, such as medical offices and pharmacies. These locations have the benefit of being able to also provide flu vaccine at the same time, which is recommended by the Health Department. Visit vaccines.gov to find a convenient vaccination site.
    • Read the entire news release.
  • Celebrating Holidays Safely: If you’re planning to travel or gather with others during the upcoming holidays, Loudoun County health officials encourage you to take precautions against COVID-19, including getting tested. 
    • Get tested before you visit with others who live outside your household regardless of their vaccination status. Knowing whether you’re infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 before you celebrate will help you to know when you should stay home so that you don’t unknowingly spread the virus to others. 
    • Take a COVID-19 test close to the date when you are traveling or planning to gather with others, but far enough ahead to get results. 
    • Learn more about precautions to take during the holidays at loudoun.gov/safeholiday
  • Next COVID-19 Testing Events: Loudoun County is hosting two more COVID-19 testing events in November:
