Virginia Hospital Center tested 60 people in its first six hours of collecting coronavirus swabs at a new drive-through center in Arlington, officials said Wednesday afternoon.
The tests, which are only open to Arlington County residents or employees with pre-submitted doctor’s orders, will take five to seven business days to be processed and get results.
Chief nursing officer Melody Dickerson said the testing is going smoothly and she is confident that the hospital has enough test kits for the immediate future.
