The WARF parking lot will open at 8 a.m. Saturday, June 20, and the first 500 people in line will get tested.
Free, drive-through COVID-19 testing will take place from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, June 20, at the Warrenton Aquatic and Recreation Facility located at 800 Waterloo Road.

The testing will be available to anyone, without a medical provider’s referral and whether or not they have experienced symptoms of the virus. Those previously tested, however, will not be eligible.

The parking lot will open at 8 a.m. and the first 500 people will get tested.

The Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District, the Town of Warrenton and Fauquier County have partnered to offer the one-day testing. Rappahannock-Rapidan Medical Reserve Corps volunteers will help staff the testing site.

“This project expands on the work of our community partnership to provide accessible testing for everyone in our community,” Warrenton Town Manager Brandie Schaeffer said. 

Participants should enter the test site from Waterloo Road and be prepared to complete paperwork in their vehicles while waiting. Those experiencing symptoms, wear masks, especially those with other passengers in their vehicles. Results of the PCR tests should be available in two to five days.

“We encourage anyone who wants to be tested, especially those with symptoms consistent with COVID-19, to come out on Saturday, June 20th,” said Dr. Wade Kartchner , Rappahannock-Rapidan Health District director.
