You can check your closest pharmacies, like Walgreens or CVS. You can also check urgent care clinics and health care systems like Atrium Health and Novant Health.

Here are other options to make sure you get tested.

One Love Periodic Services is providing free COVID-19 testing at their location at 4922 Albermarle Road in Charlotte. Walk-ins are welcome and no appointments are needed. Testing hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday.

You can contact your healthcare provider to hear their suggestions or ask if they have testing available.

Dr. Raynard Washington, the new health director for Mecklenburg County, said if you’re feeling symptomatic, you can always go straight into isolation if you are unable to get a test.

The county wants to remind you to not call 911 or go to the emergency room, as that will only delay them from responding to other emergencies.
