Hanoverians who would liked to be tested for COVID-19 can do so at the Richmond Raceway site on January 12 and from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Appointments are required.
The Richmond Raceway was formerly a COVID-19 vaccination site and had administered over 160,000 doses. Many community members are familiar with Richmond Raceway as a convenient hub for COVID-19 resources.
The CTC is made possible through a partnership between Henrico County, Virginia Department of Health (VDH), and Richmond and Henrico Health Districts (RHHD). The operations of the clinic are handled by AshBritt/IEM, the same contractor operating the CVC at Arthur Ashe Junior Athletic Center.
“We know that COVID-19 testing has been a challenge for many of our community members and testing providers over the past couple of weeks,” explains Dr. Melissa Viray, Deputy Director of RHHD. “We’re hopeful this site will make it much easier to find an appointment in our communities, while also alleviating some of the burden of our pharmacies and urgent care providers who’ve been working really hard to make testing possible.”
The CTC will operate at Gate 7, 4690 Carolina Ave. The clinic will run everyday through January 13, 2022 from 9:00am-6:00pm. After that, the clinic will run weekly Saturdays-Tuesdays from 9:00am-6:00pm.
Appointments are required for COVID-19 testing at the CTC. Individuals can schedule an appointment up to three days in advance by visiting the VASE+ testing appointment scheduling system which can be found at www.rchd.com or by calling 804-205-3501 during business hours. All appointments available at the CTC are PCR; there will not be rapid antigen tests available at the site. Individuals can select a text or email option to receive their results, which typically arrive three days after testing.
