Home COVID-19 testing kits in Guilford County and elsewhere are selling like hotcakes.

Whether hotcakes actually sell well may be a legitimate question – but there’s no doubt that the Omicron variant and heightened COVID-19 fears have led to a massive run on tests and a need for more testing opportunities in the county.

On Wednesday, Jan. 12, Guilford County government announced that it had teamed up with two more partners to offer new COVID-19 testing options for those in Guilford County who need to know whether they’ve been infected or not.

One new test site is near Friendly Shopping Center at 3120 Northline Ave. in  Greensboro.  Another, the National Institute for Molecular Diagnostics, also known as “NIMD,” is at 2216 W. Meadowview Road in Greensboro.

   Due to the increasing demand for COVID-19 testing in Guilford County, the Guilford County Department of Public Health felt a need to enter into new partnerships with these two additional COVID-19 testing services.
