The testing will be available on Tuesday, June 2, starting at 10 a.m. at the Soundside Event Site located at 6800 S. Croatan Hwy in Nags Head. The event is open to permanent residents of Dare County, ages 10 and older.
This is not a free event, however, individuals with insurance will not incur any out-of-pocket cost as the COVID-19 test is completely covered, with no deductible and no co-pays.
All insurances cover the COVID-19 diagnostic test, including Medicaid and Medicare.
Participants are required to bring a photocopy of their government-issued identification card and insurance card. Mako Medical Laboratories will work with anyone who is uninsured to assist with the cost of testing.
Appointments are required. The event will be set up to provide a total of 500 tests. Dare County Department of Health & Human Services will receive test results from Mako Medical Laboratories and call individuals to provide them with their results within 72 hours of the event.
To schedule an appointment, please call (252) 475-5008.
Officials are reminding residents that all who participate for the event need to understand that “they are coming to a community-based testing site located in a public location and therefore patient privacy cannot be assured.”
