RICHMOND, Va. -- The Eastern Shore Health District is offering a free drive-thru COVID-19 testing clinic and an opportunity to complete a 5 minute questionnaire.

Official say this is in effort to reach out to residents to understand more about COVID-19 and prevent further spread in the community.

Participation is voluntary and any information provided in the questionnaire will remain confidential. If you choose not to participate, it will not affect your access to testing.

The drive-thru event will be held this Friday and Saturday, May 8 and 9, at the Eastern Shore Community College. Clinic hours will be held from 10 am to 6 pm Friday and 9 am to 4 pm Saturday, or until testing supplies run out.

Trained teams from the Virginia National Guard will administer the tests and Health Department staff will provide you information on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 transmission.

Post-testing, the participant will receive a call from the Eastern Shore Health District with your results.

If you have any questions about this project, you may contact the Eastern Shore Health District at 757-787-5880.
