Bowser Announces Coronavirus Testing Site at UMC

D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced over the weekend a new drive-thru and walk-up coronavirus testing site at United Medical Center in Southeast.

To get tested at the site, an appointment has to be made, and to talk to a medical professional about qualifications for testing, residents should call the Testing Triage Call Center at 855-363-0333 (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday). During non-operating hours, residents who feel ill are urged to call a health care provider.

“As this public health emergency continues, we continue calling on residents to stay home if they are not engaged in essential activities,” Bowser said. “[On April 3] I presented the District’s COVID-19 situational update, which outlined the coming weeks and months, and specifically, when we expect to experience peak COVID-19 hospitalizations in Washington, D.C. Some of the numbers are tough, but they are a reminder of why we are making all these sacrifices and why we are staying home.”

The UMC testing site is for residents age 65 and older with symptoms; those with symptoms who have underlying health conditions; individuals with symptoms who work in a health care provider or facility in DC; and first responders with symptoms who work for District government.
