NEED TO KNOW

  • The NCDHHS has a list of COVID-19 testing locations found here https://covid19.ncdhhs.gov/about-covid-19/testing
  • NCDHHS issued updated guidance on who should be tested for COVID-19. The new guidance recommends that clinicians test any patient in whom COVID-19 is suspected. The new guidance recommends clinicians ensure certain populations have access to testing, regardless of symptoms, including:

    • Anyone with symptoms suggestive of COVID-19

    • Close contacts of known positive cases, regardless of symptoms 

    • Persons who live in or have regular contact with high-risk settings (e.g., long-term care facility, homeless shelter, correctional facility, migrant farmworker camp)

    • Persons who are at high risk of severe illness (e.g., people over 65 years of age, people of any age with underlying health conditions)

    • Persons who come from historically marginalized populations

    • Health care workers or first responders (e.g. EMS, law enforcement, fire department, military)

    • Front-line and essential workers (grocery store clerks, gas station attendants, etc.) in settings where social distancing is difficult to maintain
