SALISBURY — Novant Health on Thursday will close its COVID-19 screening center here as part of a consolidation of its services in Charlotte.

The Salisbury screening center is currently located at 315 Mocksville Ave., near Rowan Medical Center, and had previously been on Jake Alexander Boulevard. The new, consolidated screening center will open Monday at the parking deck on the campus of Central Piedmont Community College, 3210 CPCC Harris Campus Drive. Hours will be Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Screenings are available without a referral or appointment.

“The centrally located screening center is accessible by public transportation and will provide ongoing community access because it can accommodate more patients and offers extended hours of service,” a news release said.

Since opening the respiratory assessment and screening centers in March, Novant Health has screened more than 75,000 people. The majority of those receiving care at these locations are traveling from outside the ZIP code where the screening center is located.

In addition to Salisbury, the following screening centers will close Thursday:

  • East Charlotte: 5501 Executive Center Drive
  • Matthews: 3330 Siskey Parkway
  • Huntersville: 16525 Holly Crest Lane, Suite 120
