In response to the increasing demand for COVID-19 testing, the Guilford County Division of Public Health, Cone Health, MAKO Medical and the City of Greensboro recently opened a new testing site inside of Piedmont Hall.

The site began testing on Saturday, Jan. 8 and will be available until Friday, Jan. 21 with no out-of-pocket cost to community members. It is a decision that Cone Health CEO, Dr. Mary Jo Cagle says will be important in reducing the spread of COVID-19 as well as easing the burden on emergency departments across the region.

“We are proud to partner with these dedicated organizations to provide additional testing when and where it’s needed most,” Cagle said.

There are other testing options available in Guilford County, but the addition of the newest testing site gives residents one more option amid the ongoing rise in COVID cases.

“With the increased demand for COVID-19 testing in Guilford County, it is our shared goal that community members have adequate and accessible testing options,” said Dr. Iulia Vann, Guilford County Public Health Director.
