UNC has an established COVID Hotline which you can call and be set up for a PCR test here locally (usually the same day) at 1-888-850-2684. This is a much more accurate version of the test.

Testing will resume Tuesday, January 18, 2022 at 8:15 a.m.

 

The Wayne County Health Department is offering free rapid COVID-19 testing Monday through Friday (excluding County holidays) from 8:15-11:45 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. at 1320 W. Grantham Street in Goldsboro (former Food Lion building in the Little River Square shopping center.) 

Testing will be first come, first served in a drive through setting. Individuals will enter the parking lot at 1320 W. Grantham Street in Goldsboro and will follow the signage for rapid testing. Results will be provided on-site after the testing is completed.

Fully vaccinated individuals should get tested if they:

  • Are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. Anyone experiencing symptoms should get tested immediately.

  • Have had close contact with someone who has COVID-19, even if they are not experiencing symptoms. You should get tested within 3-5 days after exposure.

  • Are traveling internationally and returning to the United States. Fully vaccinated international travelers are required to get tested three days before travel by air into the U.S. and should also get tested 3-5 days after their trip.

Unvaccinated individuals should get tested if they: 

  • Are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. Anyone experiencing symptoms should get tested immediately. 

  • Have come in contact with someone who has COVID-19, even if they are not experiencing symptoms. If they do not have symptoms, they should wait at least six days after their last known exposure to COVID-19 before they get tested.

  • Take part in activities that put them at higher risk for COVID-19 because they cannot physically distance as needed to avoid exposure, such as travel, attending large social or mass gatherings, or being in crowded or poorly ventilated indoor settings.

Goshen Medical offers free COVID-19 tests by appointment for essential workers.
