Anyone in Hoke can schedule an appointment to get a drive-through COVID-19 test thanks to a partnership from Harris Teeter.
To schedule an appointment, go online to www.harristeeter.com/covidtesting and sign up. There is no cost for the test.
The sign-up website was having technical difficulties Tuesday, but was working as of Wednesday morning. The site was updated to include the Hoke County testing site as a selectable option.
The FDA-approved test is done as a self-administered nasal swab. Results should be back within 72 hours of the test, a spokesperson for Harris Teeter said. Testing is done in drive-through fashion, by appointment only, at Don Steed Elementary School. The school is located at 800 Philippi Church Road.
The Department of Health and Human Services selected Hoke County as the testing site.
Harris Teeter is partnering with Kroger Health and The Little Clinic to offer the COVID-19 testing, according to a press release. The partnership also plans to offer testing in Guilford County and in Charleston, South Carolina.
Testing will be available Friday, May 15; Saturday, May 16; Monday, May 18; Friday, May 22; Saturday, May 23; Friday, May 29; and Saturday, May 30. Testing won’t take place on Memorial Day.
