Due to the sudden rise in COVID cases, we are experiencing a high number of patients in our Emergency Rooms and Urgent Care seeking COVID testing, which limits our ability to care for medical emergencies. If you have mild (i.e. non-emergent) COVID symptoms or think you have been exposed and want to be tested, please visit a community testing center or a CAMC drive thru testing center.
