If you or a family member needs to be tested for COVID-19, please, please please don’t go to the Emergency Department at Maria Parham Health. According to information from the hospital, there’s a “dramatic increase” in the number of people coming to the emergency department to seek a COVID-19 test. “We are asking our community to consider alternative locations for COVID testing, in order to conserve valuable hostpiatl resources,” the statement read.
COVID tests are available at local pharmacies, urgent care clinics and primary care clinics.
