COVID TESTING: Shortage of Testing Kits

Due to a national shortage of Rapid COVID 19 Testing Kits from the federal government for hospitals, our Drive Thru Testing scheduled for Thursday, January 6th has been CANCELLED.

Our Emergency Room is also currently OUT of Rapid COVID test kits. Please refrain from visiting the ER for non-emergent care.

If you are in need of COVID Testing, the only tests we currently have available require sending out externally, with results in 3 to 5 days. These tests are available at the NRMC Walk in Clinic and Emergency Room.

If you think you are exposed to the virus, you can purchase or order online an at-home test.

You should only go to the WIC if you have symptoms. Only go to the Emergency Room if you are experiencing acute medical conditions such as chest pain, shortness of breath, or you have an acute injury.

We will update you on future Drive Thru Testing availability as we learn more.
