As Alexandria and the rest of Virginia face a spike in COVID-19 cases, the city, Alexandria Health Department and private testing company Curative launched free testing kiosks throughout Alexandria, according to a news release.

Testing at all three kiosks is free, regardless of insurance or immigration status, and does not require government identification. Those who wish to receive a test at the kiosks will be asked for their insurance information if they have a provider so that health insurance providers can be billed, according to the release.

Although appointments are encouraged, walkup testing is also available. Appointments can be made at www.curative.com. Tests are sent to a lab in Washington D.C. and results are sent back to patients by email or text within 48 to 72 hours, according to the release.

The three kiosks are located at the Leonard Armstrong Recreation Center, 25 W. Reed Ave., Ben Brenman Park, 4800 Brenman Park Drive and Charles Houston Recreation Center, 901 Wythe St.
