STAUNTON, Va. (WVIR) - A mobile COVID-19 testing station made a stop in Staunton Friday afternoon. The Virginia Department of Health with help from the Virginia National Guard set up a free drive-thru testing site at the Gypsy Hill Gym parking lot.

A Health Department representative said they had 300 viral tests to administer and she expected to get close to reaching that goal. She added that the biggest goal of the mobile testing is to make testing available for anyone who really needs it.
