Cone Health Opens COVID-19 Testing to Rockingham County
People can be tested without a doctor’s order.
Greensboro – COVID-19 testing is now being offered to Rockingham County residents without a doctor’s order or appointment. People can be tested by Cone Health staff at 617 S. Main Street, Reidsville. (On Main Street across from the Annie Penn Hospital – Emergency Department.) Testing is available whether or not you have insurance
The testing is being done Monday thru Friday 8 am-4 pm. While appointments are encouraged, drive up and walk ups are allowed. For anyone with a primary care provider, they should contact their provider first and follow their doctor’s medical guidance on whether they need a test or not. People coming for testing should remain in their car and wear a mask. A swab will be used to collect a sample and test results should be in approximately 72 hours.
“Cone Health knows how critical wide-spread coronavirus testing is to slow the spread of this disease. Many of our community members do not have a regular doctor they see for normal health checkups. We wanted to remove as many barriers to testing as possible for the health and safety of our community,” says Martin Portillo, MD, Cone Health Medical Group President and chief medical officer.
People with insurance should bring their card. Insurance coverage is not required. People living or working in high-risk environments such as meat-packing facilities and migrant farm worker camps are encouraged to be tested. People who have serious medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity or other COVID-19 risk factors are also urged to be screened.
The testing is for both adult and children. Those with testing questions should call 336-890-1140.
