Harnett County Health Department in partnership with HHS Launches ‘Surge’ COVID-19 Testing

Harnett County Health Department, along with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is announcing free COVID-19 testing throughout Harnett County. Surge testing efforts will temporarily increase federal support to communities where there has been a recent and intense level of new cases and hospitalizations related to the ongoing outbreak.  

Standing up surge testing sites is one of many tools we are utilizing now to assist local leadership to reduce community spread,” said Assistant Secretary for Health ADM Brett P. Giroir, M.D. “Data, including positive rates and demographic information, will inform how to shift state and local resources to reduce the occurrence of COVID-19.”

The Harnett County Health Department, in partnership with eTrueNorth and each of the local communities, will offer COVID-19 testing each day, at no charge to those tested.   Testing at the sites is available to individuals five years and older, including those experiencing symptoms; those who believe they may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 coronavirus; and anyone who is worried about possibly having the virus.

Individuals seeking testing do not need to be a resident of the community where these testing sites are located.  Individuals under 18 years old must have a parent or legal guardian present to consent to testing.

In Harnett County, testing will begin November 2-6, 2020 from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM at Overhills High School, located at 2495 Ray Rd., Spring Lake, NC 28390.  Testing sites will be located throughout the county at Harnett County schools from November 2 until December 4, 2020.  Listed below are the dates and sites for COVID-19 testing in Harnett County.

Individuals seeking COVID-19 testing at the Testing Sites should make every effort to pre-register for testing in advance at: www.DoINeedaCOVID19test.com.  While on-site registration will be accommodated, it will take longer than arriving with a pre-registration completed.  Individuals tested at one of these test sites must provide a telephone number and email address.  An identification card is NOT required.  Test will be self-administered nasopharyngeal, or nasal, swab tests via a drive-thru service to anyone regardless of symptoms. The samples are then sent to laboratories, where samples are analyzed for evidence of the virus.

Testing results should be received within 3 and 5 days after the test. Test results will be provided by email notification (individuals will be required to log back into the website to view their results).  Test results will also be posted in the eTrueNorth patient portal. There is not a phone number to call for results.
