  • Northern Offering COVID-19 Walk-In Test Site


    Mount Airy, NC – Northern Regional Hospital announced today that COVID-19 tests are now available at their outreach laboratory located at 810 Worth Street, across from the hospital’s emergency department. Currently, the collection site is open for walk-ins from 7:00am until 11:00am, Monday – Friday. The site is for the collection of specimens only and is not a clinic to be evaluated by a physician. Patients may come for a COVID-19 test, with or without symptoms. This test is not an antibody test, nor is it a rapid (45-minute) test. As of Friday morning, the return of test results is averaging 3-5 days. In addition to walk-ins, Northern is utilizing the outreach location to test pre-surgical patients and those sent from other area medical clinics who may be out of test kits. Insurance is accepted and there are options available for those without insurance.  We do ask for anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 to call the number on the door when they arrive and someone will instruct them on entering the office. 

    The Northern Outreach Laboratory is located on the corner of Worth Street, closest to Rockford Street, and across the street from the Northern Regional Hospital Emergency Department. The office is next door to Affordable Wellness. For questions please call 336-583-0009.
