RICHMOND COMMUNITY TESTING CENTER TO TRANSITION TO MOBILE MODEL
RICHMOND, VA- Following a couple of weeks of lower demand for COVID-19 testing at the Richmond Raceway Community Testing Center (CTC), the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and Richmond and Henrico Health Districts (RHHD) are transitioning the CTC into a mobile model. This change will increase RHHD’s ability to offer COVID-19 tests in a variety of locations and settings.
The last day for testing at the Richmond Raceway CTC will be Tuesday, February 8. Mobile events will begin later this week and a new schedule will be posted on the RHHD website in the coming days. The new mobile events will supplement community-based testing events held by RHHD and other local health districts in the area. The mobile model will continue to be operated by VDH contractor Ashbritt-IEM.
“We want to ensure there continues to be ample testing options to everyone in our communities, no matter where you live or what your schedule is like,” explains Jessica Coughlin, emergency manager at RHHD. “The additional clinical capacity offered by Ashbritt-IEM allows us to be more creative in where we implement testing.”
