Information from Orange County Health Department https://www.orangecountync.gov/2451/Testing
COVID-19 testing hosted by the Orange County Health Department is done with no out of pocket cost (insurance will be billed). For those without insurance the tests are also available and are free. Testing is conducted by two different vendors, StarMed Healthcare in Hillsborough (tests all ages) and Optum in Chapel Hill (does not test babies under the age of 1). We do not require a doctors note/referral, and we will test everyone with or without symptoms. We have interpreters on site and capacity to do virtual interpretation. Please register if you are able, but if that is a barrier, walk-ins are also welcome.
- Testing in Chapel Hill at Southern Human Services Center (SHSC) at 2501 Homestead Road, Chapel Hill, NC 27516. Testing will take place in the large conference room inside the front entrance.
- Testing in Hillsborough in the parking lot in front of the Dept. of Social Services (DSS) at 113 Mayo St., Hillsborough.
