Upcoming Free COVID-19 Testing Events

We are conducting free Covid-19 Community Testing Events in Richmond City and Henrico County. Call the hotline at (804) 205-3501 to register and find a date and location that is convenient. Tests are available while supplies last, this is the reason we encourage pre-registration. 

To reduce the load on our call center staff, consider using the COVID-19 Community Testing Event Registration form to make a testing appointment, rather than calling the hotline.

Community Testing Events are subject to change or cancellation. Testing locations are accessible for wheelchairs and other mobility support devices. Car-side testing is also available for patients on-site as needed. Can’t make one of our free testing events? To find a list of testing sites in the Richmond/Henrico area, visit the Richmond and Henrico Area COVID-19 Testing Sites page.

Richmond Declares Racism A Public Health Crisis

On Monday, July 26, Richmond joined more than 200 other localities across the US to declare racism a public health crisis. By unanimous decision, Richmond City Council adopted the declaration and committed not only to acknowledging disparities and injustices but to becoming an actively anti-racist government that centers racial justice work in all aspects of its work. This is a huge step for our city, though the declaration itself is only a symbol that will need to be followed by bold and consistent action in order to create real change…[Read more!]


Public health impacts of marijuana legalization in Virginia

As of July 1, 2021, marijuana is legal for adults ages 21+ in Virginia. Marijuana is the most commonly used drug that is not fully legal across the US. Evidence shows that in other states across the US, marijuana legalization has a positive correlation with both public safety and racial and economic justice. Historically, Black and Brown people are incarcerated at much higher rates for marijuana possession than their White counterparts, despite possessing marijuana at similar rates. Marijuana legalization has the potential to reduce incarceration rates in Black and Brown communities; reduce the whole-family trauma and instability that often results from incarceration; and create an opportunity for police departments to refocus their efforts on preventing violent crime, community policing, and practices that lead to community healing, not community fragmentation.

What is actually legal now? 

It is important to understand that marijuana is now legal in Virginia only in certain contexts and amounts…[Read more!]



The Summer Of Vax Is Going Street To Street!

June 23, 2021- This summer, RHHD’s Mobile Vaccination Van will be making its way across the city Street to Street to invite more of our friends and neighbors to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Street to Street will launch on June 25th on 25th Street in Church Hill. If you’ll be on 25th on the 25th, here’s how you can connect with us…[See all the Street to Street events!]


Get Ready For A Summer Of Vax!

June 3, 2021- If you feel like you’re ready for the wildest summer of your life after a long year at home, we’re with you. Luckily for us, the COVID-19 vaccine has made it possible for fully vaccinated people to get out and live their lives in a way that just wasn’t possible in 2020. The COVID-19 vaccine protects you from infection and slows community spread, but your next couple of months also won’t sizzle as much without it. Being sick with COVID-19 is a rough way to spend a summer, and telling your vaccinated friends that you haven’t gotten jabbed yet may create tension your summer just doesn’t need.

Richmond and Henrico Health Districts have you covered if you still need to get the vaccine before things really start heating up. On June 3, we are launching Summer of Vax, a campaign to make getting the COVID vaccine as easy as ordering a beer or deciding on an ice cream flavor. Now you can experience way more freedom while also keeping grandma safe… [Read more!]
