Free COVID-19 Testing Coming to Southgate Community Center in Reston

Reston residents looking to get tested for COVID-19 can do so at a free testing clinic this week in Reston.

The Fairfax County Health Department and Southgate Community Center are partnering to offer free testing on Wednesday, August 5 from 5-8 p.m. at the community center, which is located at 12125 Pinecrest Road.

It is important to note that the event is intended for people who live within a two-mile radius of the community center. Reston Association noted that the site is “not a large public testing event open to anyone.” In the past, previous officials have stressed the need for localized testing. Testing clinics that were broadly advertised in the past led to major logistical issues when testing for COVID-19 initially began in the county.

A doctor referral and identification are not required to get tested. Health insurance is also not required. Residents must be five years or older to get tested.

Patients must pre-register in order o get tested by calling 703-267-3511 or by registering online. Contact information will only be used to provide test results.
