    COVID-19 Testing & Treatment:

  • To find a testing site near you, visit ncdhhs.gov/GetTested. For an up-to-date list of no-cost community testing events, visit the No-Cost Testing Events webpage. Additionally, all North Carolinians can request a free at-home COVID-19 testing kit.
  • COVID-19 treatments are available and can lower your risk of hospitalization or death. But treatments must be given as soon as you feel sick and can only be prescribed by a medical professional. Have symptoms? Don't wait:
  • Find a test-to-treat location to get treatment started ASAP
  • Talk to your doctor about treatment
  • Or call 1-800-232-0233 (TTY 888-720-7489). The call center can help if you do not have a health care provider and is available in 150 languages.
  • Treatments are not a substitute for vaccination. Vaccines continue to offer the best protection against COVID-19.
