RICHMOND, Va. (WAVY) — Community Testing Centers in Virginia will be closed on Sunday due to winter weather on its way.

There are testing centers run by the Virginia Department of Health in Richmond, Newport News, Norfolk and Prince William. Two centers in Fairfax and Charlottesville will open on Saturday, January 15, but will be closed for the weather event on Sunday.

The CTCs operate by appointments only and in Norfolk and Newport News are generally open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Saturday through Thursday.

UPDATE: The CVCs and CTCs in Norfolk and Newport News will be open Monday with regular hours.

The Virginia Department of Health will decide on Sunday afternoon whether vaccination and testing centers will open Monday. Check VDH’s website and social media accounts for information on closures.

VDH Community Vaccination Centers (CVCs) across the state are not usually open on Sundays regardless.
