LANDOVER, Md. - The Washington Redskins are utilizing the parking lot at FedEx Field to join the fight against the coronavirus.

The team has teamed up with Prince George's and Maryland Health Department to set up community screening stations in the stadium's parking lot.

The process of setting up the screening facility for people in the Washington Metropolitan area began on Friday when the Maryland National Guard put up 10 tents and handwashing stations.

Redskins.com shared that the health screening facility is scheduled to be up and running in the coming days, and patients must register to be tested at this site.
