North Carolina COVID-19 Dashboard. North Carolina has relied on science, timely data, and key metrics to guide its pandemic response. Because no one metric captures everything, we use a combination of metrics to guide our approach. The most important of these are below. COVID-19 vaccine availability for children ages 6 months through 4 years (Message to UW Medicine patients) June 22, 2022; Changes to HCT testing for this summer (Message to Husky Coronavirus Testing study participants) June 8, 2022; Current COVID-19 conditions and looking ahead to summer and fall (Message to the UW community) June 2, 2022. MinuteClinic uses multiple types of COVID-19 testing to check for active infection. Most rapid-result testing locations perform antigen testing. Limited rapid-result locations and all drive-thru lab testing locations perform PCR/NAAT testing. If you are getting your testing for a specific purpose such as travel, please ensure you are selecting. You can also text the word "Coronavirus" to 211-211 to receive information and updates on your phone wherever you are. If you need someone to talk to about stress due to COVID-19 call Washington Listens at 1-833-681-0211. TTY and language access services are available.
