COVID19 UPDATE: Drive-Thru Testing on Campus

April 04, 2020

GW's medical enterprise is launching drive-thru COVID-19 testing on Monday, April 6, 2020, in parking “Lot 3” on the corner of 20th and H Streets NW, beginning at 9:30 a.m. and running until 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Testing at the GW site will be by appointment only. Patients exhibiting coronavirus symptoms are urged to reach out to their providers for a telemedicine consult and an order for testing. Patients who are referred and have an order for testing will be given an appointment window for drive-thru testing. They must present that order and an identification upon entering the drive thru lane at 22nd and H Streets, NW. For more information on how to obtain a drive-thru testing order please go to

This site was selected because it offers a safe environment for testing and will not impact access to university buildings in the area. However, please remember that only designated on-site personnel should be traveling to and from campus for work duties. Those designated on-site employees should expect increased vehicular traffic in the blocks around the testing site.

This drive-thru testing site is a partnership between the GW Medical Faculty Associates, the GW Hospital and the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences with space provided by The George Washington University.
