Tryon Medical Partners will open remote testing locations to give patients access to flu and COVID-19 testing without leaving their vehicles. Starting Tuesday, March 17, the first location will be in Matthews, located at 630 Matthews Township Parkway, with more to come.
Tryon Medical patients who have been prescreened by phone or through Tryon Virtual Connect can see a dedicated team of Tryon Medical Partners doctors and staff, to discuss coronavirus symptoms and concerns. They will administer a flu test first; the results will be returned while the patient waits. If the flu test is negative, a COVID-19 test may be administered. LEARN MORE.

Atrium and Novant are providing the following options for screening, per this Charlotte Agenda update.
At Atrium Health, a provider must order coronavirus tests based on the patient’s symptoms and other criteria. Atrium has a number of mobile testing locations, but is not disclosing the locations of all of those sites. “After patients have undergone a virtual visit … or spoken with a provider, and a testing need is determined, the patient is provided instructions on where to go for testing,” spokesman Dan Fogleman said.
On weekdays, Novant has screening centers open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the following locations:
- Two screening centers are open in Matthews (3330 Siskey Parkway) and in Winston-Salem (600 Highland Oaks)
- Two more will open Wednesday, March 18, in Huntersville (16525 Holly Crest Lane, Suite 120) and in Kernersville (111 Gateway Center Drive)
- All Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care Centers are also screening
Novant says that people without symptoms will not be tested and will be asked stay home.
