HAMPTON ROADS, Va. — Sentara has reopened two of their coronavirus drive-thru testing sites after closing all of them Wednesday due to low test supply.

The two locations that have been reopened are Sentara Princess Anne Hospital and Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center.

At this time, officials say the drive-thru operations at Sentara Edinburgh will not reopen. Residents in this area are encouraged to utilize the Sentara Princess Anne Hospital site.

Sentara says it is working with state and federal officials to get more testing supplies.

If you have any symptoms, Sentara asks for you to contact a primary care provider or call the Sentara coronavirus call center at 1-833-945-2395 before visiting a Sentara Hospital location.

Sentara says it still has the ability to test high-risk patients inside the hospitals.
