FOREST, Va. (WFXR) — The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and Centra Urgent Care will be providing a free COVID-19 testing event on Monday.

The free testing site is in response to an increased testing demand and a limited number of testing options in the community.

The testing will take place from 9 a.m. to noon in the parking lot behind Centra Urgent Care at 16890 Forest Road in Forest. Anyone can attend the event regardless of any known exposure to COVID or presence of symptoms. No appointment is necessary. Those who attend will receive a PCR test and results will be released within 72 hours.

VDH says that the best way to prevent the spread of COVID is to wear a mask, be socially distant, and frequently wash your hands.
