“Testing is an important public health tool during an outbreak, and unfortunately, we’re seeing a huge surge of COVID-19 cases in the Camden County area,” said Dr. Lawton Davis, Health Director of the Coastal Health District. “Identifying cases can help us slow the spread of illness. We want to make it easier for residents in Camden County to get tested, whether they’re sick and want to know if it’s COVID, or because they’ve been exposed and are in quarantine.”
The expanded schedule begins August 3rd and will be reevaluated frequently. There is no cost to the client for testing through public health regardless of insurance status. Test results are typically available in 24-36 hours.
