ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - The Virginia Department of Health and Centra Urgent Care will host a free COVID-19 testing event Monday, October 4.

The event will be from 9 a.m. to noon in the parking lot behind the Centra Urgent Care at 16890 Forest Road in Forest.

According to the Central Virginia Health District, anyone is welcome to come, regardless of any known exposure to COVID-19 or presence of symptoms. Anyone tested can expect to get the results of their PCR rest within 72 hours.

The health district says the free testing event was planned in response to the increased demand for testing, coupled with the limited options for testing in the community.
