Free COVID-19 Testing Sites in the Blue Ridge Health District

Below are upcoming free testing sites hosted by BRHD and other community agencies. Note: These sites are offering free COVID PCR testing (nasal swab). BRHD and UVA are not offering antibody testing at community test sites. Also, if you need testing for travel purposes, you should find the requirements and contact your primary care provider or go to an urgent care for testing.
