ASHEBORO (Oct. 26, 2020)
Randolph County Public Health, in conjunction with StarMed Healthcare, is conducting no-cost COVID-19 testing Thursday, Nov. 5, from 4-7 p.m. in the Randolph Community College Martha Luck Comer Conference Center parking lots on the Asheboro Campus.
There is no appointment needed for the drive-thru event. Registration is on-site, and patients can meet with an on-site provider before testing.
The free nasal swab (PCR) test is free as it is covered by insurance or submitted for reimbursement through the CARES Act. Results are available in 72 hours or less, though exceptions may apply with inconclusive results. Providers will contact patients via text message with positive or negative results.
An optional Rapid Blood Antibody Test, which can determine if a person was previously infected, is available for $50. The results of the antibody test are available within 5-10 minutes of being administered.
To get tested, take Entrance B on Industrial Park Avenue in Asheboro and look for the clock tower. Participants must wear a mask to protect those around them.
