Vienna, VA – Sean Perryman’s campaign for Lt. Governor of Virginia is partnering with the First Baptist Church of Vienna, Little Union Baptist Church in Dumfries, and Inspire Diagnostics to offer no-cost community COVID-19 testing in Northern Virginia this month. This is a first-of-its-kind event in the Lt. Governor race, and comes at a time when big gains are being made to finally put an end to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Testing is available free-of-cost regardless of insurance status. These events will be the first of a series of free testing events being offered throughout the Commonwealth as part of a partnership between the Perryman campaign and Inspire Diagnostics.
There will be two opportunities for residents of Northern Virginia to get a free COVID test in March:
- March 20th, from 10AM to 4PM at First Baptist Church of Vienna, 450 Orchard St NW Vienna, VA 22180
- March 27th, from 10AM to 4PM at Little Union Baptist, 17150 Mine Rd, Dumfries, VA 22025
Those interested can pre-register for their test at the link here. First Baptist Church of Vienna will also be providing vaccinations to eligible pre-registered members of the community.
“The devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic was one of the initial sparks behind my decision to run for office,” said Perryman. “We’ve seen what can happen when quick testing isn’t available for everyone, but instead only available for those with the resources to be prioritized. Even now as more and more Virginians receive the vaccine, it’s imperative that our communities continue to get tested and ensure we stop the spread of the virus until we achieve full vaccination. Our campaign is leading in responsible response to this pandemic, and we are offering the tests completely free of cost so nobody faces a barrier to getting their test.”
Sean Perryman is President Emeritus of the Fairfax County Chapter of the NAACP, a technology public policy advocate, attorney, and former congressional investigator. If elected he would become one of the youngest Lt. Governors in Virginia history.
