Loudoun County Update
- Testing Event at Bolen Park on January 4: If you’re planning to get a COVID-19 test at the Loudoun County drive-thru testing event scheduled for January 4, 2021, at Philip A. Bolen Memorial Park in Leesburg, review all of the information below. Testing is scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m. The address of the park is 42405 Claudia Drive, Leesburg.
- Do not arrive before 7:00 a.m. Anyone planning to attend is asked not to arrive any earlier than 7:00 a.m. to give maintenance crews time to safely clear the entrance to the park of any refreezing that may occur overnight that could create slippery conditions.
- Enter the park on Crosstrail Boulevard from Sycolin Road. Vehicles will not be allowed to enter the testing line from any other location.
- Complete the registration form ahead of time. 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.
- Registration Form: English (PDF) | Spanish (PDF)
- 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.
- Wait times may be several hours. Even if you arrive early, you should expect long wait times to get through the testing line.
- Capacity is limited by the space for vehicles and the need to complete testing during daylight hours. The county and its testing contractor intend to test as many people as possible given the constraints of space, time and staffing. We understand that demand for testing is very high and are continually striving to increase the number of tests that can be administered.
- Entrance to the park may be restricted intermittently to limit traffic impacts on Sycolin Road. Queuing on Sycolin Road will not be allowed on January 4. If testing capacity is reached, the site will close for the day. To be notified regarding changes in site operations, opt in to receive text message updates in English (text LCCOVID19 to 888777) or Spanish (text LCCOVIDESP to 888777), or check the Loudoun County Government Facebook page or @LoudounCoGovt on Twitter.
- Follow direction from law enforcement and traffic management staff. Traffic patterns inside the park will be arranged to maximize testing and vehicle queueing. Please pay close attention to direction from traffic management.
- Testing events are scheduled on Tuesdays and Fridays in January. More information about testing opportunities for the month of January is available at loudoun.gov/covid19testing.
- Boosters for Younger Teens: The Food and Drug Administration is authorizing booster shots of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 12 to 15. Boosters already are recommended for everyone 16 and older. This was one of several actions the FDA took today. The agency also approved shortening the time between the completion of the primary series of the Pfizer vaccine and a booster dose to at least five months and approved a third dose of vaccine for children ages 5 – 11 who are immunocompromised. The recommendations will be considered next by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
- Return to School Checklist: As students return to school in Loudoun County after the winter break, health officials encourage parents to take steps to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses to keep their children healthy. No one mitigation measure is perfect, but getting vaccinated against COVID-19 and the flu is the most important step you can take to protect children from getting sick.
- Anyone 5 and older is eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine and anyone 16 and older is eligible for a booster. To make an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine at the county’s Dulles Town Center clinic, visit loudoun.gov/covid19vaccine.
- In addition, COVID-19 vaccine is widely available in the community from many providers, 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. Visit vaccines.gov to find a vaccination site near you.
- ERs are for Emergencies: Virginia health officials urge residents to avoid going to hospital emergency departments if they have a mild case of COVID-19, flu or other non-serious illness. Hospitals across Virginia have recently experienced an influx of patients seeking emergency department care for asymptomatic or relatively mild COVID-19 infections, as well as cases of the flu or other seasonal illness, placing a strain on the health care system.
- Foreclosure Prevention: If the COVID-19 pandemic has caused you to fall behind on your mortgage payments, you may be eligible for help from the new Virginia Mortgage Relief Program. Applications are now being accepted from homeowners who need help to prevent or ease mortgage delinquencies, defaults, foreclosures and displacement.
