Guilford County Offers Drive-Through COVID-19 Community Testing
Guilford County is set to unveil drive-through community testing for the coronavirus.
County health officials describe this as a “prioritized” testing campaign, meaning it’s targeting those at highest risk for COVID-19.
A confidential pre-screening interview will be conducted to determine if you’re eligible. In order to be tested, you must be displaying symptoms that may include coughing, shortness of breath, headache, chills, sore throat, or a new loss of taste or smell.
You must also be 65 years or older, or have an underlying medical condition.
A county news release says the testing will be done by appointment only on the UNC Greensboro campus, Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. through 3 p.m.
An appointment can be scheduled by calling 336-641-7527.
The testing begins Tuesday and is part of a collaboration between the Guilford County Division of Public Health, UNCG, and Cone Health.
