Free COVID-19 testing scheduled in Harrisonburg
HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) — The City of Harrisonburg announced that a free COVID-19 drive-thru testing event will take place on Thursday, July 9.
The city, in partnership with the Virginia Department of Health, will test residents on a first-come, first-served basis from 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. at Harrisonburg High School, located at 1001 Garbers Church Road.

If you plan to get tested, you’re asked to wear a mask, stay at least six feet away from others at all times and talk to a healthcare provider if you are having symptoms of COVID-19 such as cough, shortness of breath, and/or a fever.
As of July 1, the Virginia Department of Health had received reports of 937 positive cases in Harrisonburg and 720 positive cases in Rockingham County.
