Halloween 2020 in Alexandria was a quieter affair than in pre-pandemic days that saw families and neighbors mark the holiday with socially distanced gatherings. A rare Blue Moon illuminated this Halloween.
Two locations in Alexandria are offering limited free community coronavirus testing on Monday. New vehicles were stopped admitting to drive-thru testing at Landmark Mall along Van Dorn Street at 1 p.m., five hours before it was set to close down. It is one of two locations that planned to have free testing with no appointment or doctor’s referral required.
