COVID-19 testing site adjusts schedule
UNC Health Southeastern’s drive through COVID-19 testing site at the main entrance to the medical center will no longer provide testing on Sundays starting this weekend.
“We have seen a downward trend in testing demand, therefore, we feel that we can adequately meet the needs of our patients with a six-day schedule,” said Jason Cox, UNC Health Southeastern Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
The testing site will operate Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., however, patients are asked to arrive by 4 p.m. in order to be tested in a timely manner before the site closes.
COVID-19 test results are available through MyChart. Patients who like to sign up for MyChart may contact Carlotta Winston at (910) 734-3657.
Printed copies of negative test results may be obtained from UNC Health Southeastern’s Community Health Education Center, also known as CHEC, located within Biggs Park Mall in Lumberton. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Patients with positive test results are urged not to visit the center until their quarantine period has ended.
