Poll: Have You Gotten a COVID-19 Test?

Virginia officials are looking to ramp up COVID-19 testing efforts.

Gov. Ralph Northam has said that increasing testing capacity is key to determining when to walk back restrictions on businesses and large gatherings, WTVR in Richmond reported.

The article noted that Northam created a working group to address test backlogs, increase the number of test sites and tackle shortages of equipment needed for tests.

The Fairfax Health District, which includes Fairfax County and its towns and cities, has seen more than 13,000 test results, according to data earlier this week from the Virginia Department of Health.

Fairfax County has a list of resources for people seeking COVID-19 tests. In Tysons, places with testing include the Inova Urgent Care Center (8357 Leesburg Pike) and Kaiser Permanente (8008 Westpark Drive).

Let us know in the poll below if you have gotten a COVID-19 test.
