COVID-19 Resources

Vaccine Information

How do I get tested?

  • Go to the NC Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) link: Find My Testing Place
    1. NO-COST Community Testing Event Finder: This is where you find free screening events offered through Blue Ridge Health and the Health Department. Search by county to find the screening nearest you. These are subject to change, so check the site for updates.
    2. Test Site Finder: This is where you find places that routinely offer testing for a fee and may be able to file insurance. These are typically Urgent Care facilities or drugstores like CVS. It’s best to call before you go.
    3. Your health care provider: Testing protocols vary for different providers depending on whether you have symptoms of COVID-19. You need to call before you go.
