COVID-19 UPDATE – As of December 2, 2020
Inova’s multidisciplinary team is continuously monitoring the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation.
Our dedicated team of experts is up-to-date on developments and CDC guidelines, and has developed a comprehensive response plan to maintain the safety and well-being of our community.
Inova will continue to provide updates as the situation evolves.
All Inova hospitals and care sites are open and serving patients.
Inova offers COVID-19 testing for patients who have a provider order. If you think you need to be tested for COVID-19, contact your primary care provider or visit an Inova Respiratory Illness Clinic. If you have an order, you can schedule your test in MyChart or book an appointment online at one of our three vehicle-side testing locations. For those seeking COVID-19 testing without a provider order, please visit the Virginia Department of Health COVID-19 Testing Site for a list of other COVID-19 test sites. Inova is continuously reviewing testing criteria and guidance provided by the CDC and Virginia Department of Health in order to best serve our community.
