Roanoke City and Alleghany Health Districts Announce the Opening of a Community Testing Center

The Roanoke City and Alleghany Health Districts (RCAHD) announced that a Community Testing Center (CTC) at Valley View Mall is open as of January 20, 2022, to provide free Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing for COVID-19 to increase testing access in response to public demand.

The CTC will operate by appointment only and will be open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday. To find an appointment, visit vase.vdh.virginia.gov/testingappointment. Appointments will typically be released 24 hours ahead of each day’s event.

CTC test results will be automatically sent via text or email message to individuals being tested, usually within a few days, based on the information provided in the appointment system. PCR test results are very effective in detecting an active COVID-19 infection, even if asymptomatic.

The Valley View Testing Center site is a welcome addition to RCAHD’s existing local community testing events, all of which will be appointment-only events going forward. RCAHD will announce future testing opportunities on its website (vdh.virginia.gov/roanoke/covid-19-testing-locations/) throughout the month of January.
