We offer both saliva and nasopharyngeal COVID-19 tests. Both are highly sensitive tests, leading to the least false positives possible. The nasopharyngeal sample collection provides a slight level of discomfort for many people and requires a trained health professional to administer. A saliva test can be self-administered at our drive-up location in Arden, NC or in the comfort of your home with our no swab home saliva collection kit. Both tests have a relatively rapid turnaround time. Contact us to help determine the best test to fit your needs.
CommunityLab understands that COVID-19 hasn’t stopped spreading across Western North Carolina (WNC). We know that rapid identification of the virus is essential to helping stop it. Our rapid and reliable testing combined with contact tracing, social distancing, and quarantining helps stop this virus. The WNC region is home to underserved, minority communities that may not have access to this type of testing on a regular basis. Our mission is to remove barriers to testing, allowing all residents to receive the testing and care they deserve.
