Fairfax County Health Department has announced a partnership with Curative to provide no cost COVID-19 PCR testing at six sites around Fairfax County. 

Each site is open two days per week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on a regular schedule that our residents can rely on (see https://bit.ly/3ahnVZV). These sites are in areas where access to other testing options may be fewer.  

COVID-19, unfortunately, is still with us and testing helps reduce disease and it’s impacts on families. FCHD encourages testing, either at one of the sites or using a home test, for anyone who experiences COVID-19 symptoms, who may have been exposed, or who recently has traveled to help stop the spread of the virus. 

“While we have not had huge demand at previous County testing sites, in part because many people test at home, we do feel this resource will be well utilized at the sites we have carefully chosen,” said Lucy Caldwell, spokeswoman for the Health Department.

Curative bills third party payers (insurance companies) for testing, although testing also is available at no cost for those who do not have health insurance.
