“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 want to remove as many barriers to testing as possible for the health and safety of our community,” says Dr. James Wyatt, medical director, Moses Cone Hospital.
Testing is free, though people with insurance should bring their card. Insurance coverage is not required. People living or working in places with lots of public interaction such as group homes, nursing homes, bus drivers and retail clerks 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 tested.
The testing is for both adults and children.
