Has the county considered establishing remote, on-site testing stations at senior living facilities?

(Posted 3/11/20): Loudoun County wants to minimize barriers for ill residents, particularly those at increased risk of serious complications from infection, from being evaluated for COVID-19.  For the majority of residents, the best answer to this is for them to be evaluated and screened by their primary care provider because they may be ill from something other than COVID-19 that can be treated, such as influenza.  For those who can’t access a private healthcare provider, there may be a role for the Loudoun County government to obtain specimens for testing, particularly if there was concern over spread within the facility.
