ROCKY MOUNT, Va. (WFXR) — A COVID-19 test site in Franklin County shut down early Tuesday after it hit capacity within an hour of opening.
The test site was originally scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Pigg River Community Center on Main Street in Rocky Mount.
Nancy Bell, public information officer for the West Piedmont Health District, told WFXR that the community response to free testing without having to get a note from a doctor resulted in more people than expected.
Participants in line at this time will still get a test but no new patients will be accepted this morning.
