COVID-19 cases are rising. Find information about testing and visit our COVID-19 Resource Center for more updates.

We want to make it easy to get a COVID-19 test. In addition to testing by appointment, Atrium Health offers walk-in and drive-up testing at convenient locations in our community.

Our community testing sites offer self-swab testing for everyone ages 3 and older – no appointment needed.

If you think you need to be tested, find the best location for you and come during our open hours.

Please note wait times may be long. The car line may close early, depending on the number of patients in line. If the weather is bad due to heavy rain or thunderstorms, we will not be open.

Locations and dates for testing

Our community testing locations are updated weekly. Check the listings below to see where we’ll be this week.

If you’d like to make an appointment for a test at a different location, please schedule online through MyAtriumHealth or call 704-468-8888.

Please note that Atrium Health is not able to clear employees for “return to work” at these locations. If you’re an employer looking for testing for your employees, please contact our return-to-work team at COVID19RTW@AtriumHealth.org.

What to expect

Our community testing sites use PCR tests, which are the most accurate option available. Here’s how the testing process works.

  1. Pick a convenient location. Check the listings above to find a location that works for you. Double check the date and hours to make sure we’re open when you’re ready to come get tested.
  2. Get ready. Please wear a mask or cloth face covering to the testing site and keep it on until you’re asked to remove it for your test. You don’t need to bring an ID or driver’s license with you, but people under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
  3. Drive or walk right up. You don’t need an appointment. Testing will be conducted on a first-come, first-served basis and wait times vary by location. If driving, stay in your car with the windows up until a team member tells you to lower your window or get out of the car. If walking, please stay 6 feet apart from other individuals.
  4. Follow the on-site team’s directions. When you arrive at the testing location, there will be signs and healthcare workers to help you know what to do every step of the way.
  5. Take your self-swab test. You will swab your own nose (or your child’s nose) while a healthcare worker supervises. They will give you instructions and can answer any questions you have. You can also see our self-swab testing instructions in English and Spanish.
  6. Wait for your results. With increases in demand for COVID-19 testing, your results can be delayed. Test results can be expected within 3-5 days. We’ll call or text you when your results are ready. You can also review your test results in MyAtriumHealth – creating an account is fast and easy. If you don’t receive your results within 7 days of your visit, please call 704-468-8888.

You can find more information about COVID-19 testing here. This includes answers to frequently asked questions, info about follow-up care and how to get testing for kids under 3.

Important: Your immigration status will never be shared, and we don’t report undocumented patients.

COVID-19 test cost

  • For patients WITH insurance

    There is no out-of-pocket cost for testing for exposure to COVID-19 or COVID-19 symptoms. If you need a test for work, school or travel, this test will be billed to your insurance provider, and you may have out-of-pocket costs. Contact your insurance provider with questions about your specific plan.

  • For patients with NO insurance

    If you do not have insurance, and the service provided falls under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) during the COVID-19 pandemic, you will not be billed for these services.
