NC Department of Health and Human Services reminds residents to practice the 3 Ws — wear a face covering, wait six feet apart, and wash hands frequently. Anyone who thinks they have been exposed to COVID-19 is encouraged to be tested regardless of whether or not they are experiencing symptoms. People who have attended a mass gathering or protest and those who live or work in a setting where they are at higher risk of exposure should be tested.

The Caldwell County Health Department in conjunction with West Caldwell Health Council, will hold a COVID-19 Drive-thru Testing Event on Tuesday, June 16, from 2-5 p.m. in the parking lot at South Caldwell High School. Testing is free, but people are asked to bring their insurance card and, if possible, download and complete the testing form found here.
