Wayne County Announces Free COVID-19 Testing

The Wayne County Health Department is offering free COVID-19 testing in Goldsboro on June 30, 2020 and July 2, 2020 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Testing will be offered at the GWTA Transit Center at 103 N Carolina St. in Goldsboro. This is the first location for community testing offered by the Health Department, and more testing sites across the county will be announced at a later date. Community testing is being funded by CARES Act dollars the County has received to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

Testing is open to everyone, but pre-registration is recommended to ensure an appointment time. Individuals may call the Health Department at (919) 731-1000 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Friday, June 26, 2020 and Monday, June 29, 2020 to pre-register. After an appointment is made, simply come to the testing site and follow the signage on site. Testing will be conducted in a drive-thru setting but walk up visitors, or visitors who did not pre-register, will also be accepted. Bilingual staff will be on site to assist anyone who needs a translator.

Testing will be provided to the public regardless of insurance and there will be no cost to the individual.

The free COVID-19 testing is being provided through a partnership between Wayne County and Wayne UNC Health Care.
