The Prince William Health District (PWHD) is expanding testing with the recent addition of the CTC+ initiative, a vendor operated van with testing staff that will travel throughout the region in support of expanding testing to communities that have low access to testing. The initiative involves the transitioning from the Community Testing Center (CTC) which will be closed to provide testing at flexible community testing sites.

The Community Testing Center located at 7 County Complex Court, Woodbridge, has stopped operations Thursday Feb. 10, 2022. The new testing initiative will begin operation on or about Feb. 15, 2022 in Fairfax County, then head into PWHD Jurisdiction after Feb. 21, 2022. The new initiative will allow the Local Health Districts to create testing opportunities at different locations based on community needs. The hours of operation are Tuesday to Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The testing vendor will offer free Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing for COVID-19 to individuals 3 months and older.  PCR test results are usually available within a few days, and are very effective in detecting an active COVID-19 infection, even if asymptomatic.

The new testing initiative will be in addition to existing Community Testing Events (CTEs) and other testing activities offered in the community. Testing remains an important tool to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. It is important to understand when one needs to seek testing. The following are reasons to get tested for COVID-19.

Residents interested in receiving a free test at a community testing site can visit the Prince William Health Department website to locate a testing location vdh.virgina.gov/prince-william . Walk-ins are welcome. For individuals interested in making an appointment, visit VASE+
