Coronavirus testing in Leesburg

A medical provider gives a COVID-19 test during a county-sponsored testing event in Leesburg in May 2020.

Loudoun County government will host free, drive-thru COVID-19 testing every Tuesday in May from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., officials said Thursday afternoon.

The county will also hold a previously scheduled testing event Tuesday, April 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Ray Muth Sr. Memorial Park, 20971 Marblehead Dr. in Ashburn.

The May events will be at various locations around the county and will not involve age or residency requirements, nor will visitors have to exhibit COVID-19 systems to be tested.

Personnel will administer a PCR test via nasal swab. Loudoun County officials emphasized that neither the COVID-19 vaccine nor antibody tests will be available at the events.

While visitors do not need prescriptions or appointments to receive a test, they are encouraged to complete an online registration form to help reduce wait times.

The May 4 drive-thru event will be at Franklin Park, 17501 Franklin Park Dr. in Purcellville, while the May 11 event will be at Philip A. Bolen Memorial Park, 42405 Claudia Dr. in Leesburg.

Cascades Library, 21030 Whitfield Pl. in Potomac Falls, will host the May 18 testing event, and Dulles South Recreation & Community Center at 24950 Riding Center Dr. in South Riding will host testing on May 25.

Downloadable registration forms and more information are available at loudoun.gov/covid19testing.
