COVID Testing and Vaccination Update

The Virginia Department of Health recently opened a Community Testing Center (CTC) outside of Military Circle Mall.
The CTC will offer traditional PCR testing (no rapid tests available) by appointment only from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Saturday thru Thursday. Staff will be available on site to assist individuals who lack internet access or who may require further assistance with registration. To find an appointment, visit vase.vdh.virginia.gov/testingappointment. Enter zip code 23502.
Test results will be automatically sent via text or email message to individuals being tested, based on the information provided in the appointment system. PCR test results are usually available within a few days and are very effective in detecting an active COVID-19 infection, even if asymptomatic.
 
You can also search the VDH COVID-19 Testing Sites Locator Webpage (https://www.vdh.virginia.gov/…/covid-19-testing-sites/)

COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters will continue to be offered by the Chesapeake Health Department every Tuesday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Dominion Commons Walk In Clinic, 648 Grassfield Pkwy. Vaccinations are offered free of charge, ages 5 and up. Boosters are recommended for those ages 12 and up. 

While there are many unknowns about the Omicron variant, the best way to prevent infection is to get vaccinated, wear a mask in indoor settings where social distancing cannot be maintained, getting tested upon any sign and symptoms of illness, and staying home if ill.
