VA starts drive-thru COVID-19 testing in Salisbury

SALISBURY — The W.G. “Bill” Hefner VA Medical Center has launched drive-thru COVID-19 testing at the campus on Brenner Avenue.

Drive-thru testing will be conducted Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Enrolled veterans can enter through the Hedrick Street gate and follow instructions to reach the testing area if appropriate.

Regular COVID-19 testing will still occur, as needed, through the emergency department during all other hours.

Additionally, effective Tuesday, the Salisbury VA Medical Center pharmacy will provide curbside pickup for urgent prescriptions following medical visits or for other urgent needs. Providers will continue to prescribe or refill and mail out non-urgent prescriptions.

The curbside pickup site is the circle drive in front of Building No. 2. It will be provided Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
