WINSTON-SALEM – Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist is expanding the hours of operation for the three no-cost community COVID-19 testing sites the health system is hosting with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.

Beginning this weekend, and weather permitting, all three sites, in Winston-Salem, High Point and Wilkesboro, will be open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. These expanded hours are in addition to the regular Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. schedule.

PCR testing is available to anyone age 2 or older, with or without symptoms. There is no cost and no insurance information is collected. Those who wish to be tested do not need to be Wake Forest Baptist patients.

Appointments are not required but are recommended to save time at the testing site. Appointments can be made by visiting or by calling 877-562-4850.

People should not go to Urgent Care clinics or Emergency Departments for COVID-19 testing, but instead should utilize a no-cost community testing site.
