Effective Saturday, August 8, 2020: Due to the overwhelming response to COVID testing, Piedmont Family Practice met with County, Town and Virginia Health Department Officials last night to discuss how best to proceed. We must once again adjust our procedures to meet our local demand.
Cost for COVID testing will be $75 for residents of the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) Rappahannock-Rapidan Region. (Including: Fauquier, Culpeper, Rappahannock, Madison and Orange). PROOF OF RESIDENCY MUST BE PRESENTED! Either valid drivers license OR a utility bill within the last 90 days with the name of the patient. Other individuals within the car must present ID and minors will be presumed to live at that address.
Cost for residents outside of the Rappahannock-Rapidan area is $200 per person.
We regret having to resort to this pricing structure but we must follow the suggestion of count and town leaders, the Fauquier County Sheriff’s department and the Warrenton Town Police.
The curbside COVID testing initiative was undertaken at the direction of the Rappahannock-Rapidan VDH Covid Testing Task Force. It was initially intended to screen patients for COVID disease within this designated area. Over the last several weeks however, this program has grown to attract many customers from outside our area. The ensuing congestion has precipitated traffic gridlock. This has endangered town and county residents driving through the area, the safety of our staff members and patients attempting to access their appointments within the Warrenton Professional Building.
We appreciate your patience in helping us fight this pandemic.
