The specimens are picked up daily and sent to an accredited lab for PCR testing. Individuals will receive notification of their test results by email or text, usually within 48 hours of specimen collection. Though not required, pre-registration for testing at the kiosk is available at register.testandgo.com

You also can pick up a free COVID-19 rapid self-test kit in the lobby as supplies remain available.

Low Birthweight Initiative

Low birthweight infants (born weighing less than 5.5 pounds) face higher rates of infant mortality, developmental challenges and long-term disabilities. We are working to reduce the number of low birthweight babies born to Butts County residents by partnering with social and health care agencies to provide smoking cessation classes, nutrition and healthy lifestyle classes, assistance with maternal stress management, and referral to affordable health and dental care.
