Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Towns partner to offer free service on Aug. 22

The Towns of Arapahoe and Minnesott Beach have come together to provide free COVID-19 testing for their residents. The funds are being provided by the recent CARES Act for the purpose of COVID-19 related expenses.

The testing will be conducted on Saturday, August 22, 2020 at the Arapahoe Free Will Baptist church, 7970 Hwy. 306 South, starting at 8:00AM. In order to receive the test, you must schedule an appointment and a time.

To schedule an appointment, please call Star Medical at 910 330-2335 and speak with Kevin. This will be a first come-first served opportunity, since the Towns have limited funds for these tests. Once the quota is filled, we will not be able to provide additional tests.

To obtain an appointment time, you will be asked to provide your name, date of birth and address. The address should be your residence, in Arapahoe or Minnesott Beach. Please inform Star Medical whether you are requesting a nose swab for active disease, or the antibody test for past exposure.

There are forms that will need to filled out and brought to the testing site. The forms can be downloaded at www.minnesottbeachnc.govoffice2.com . The forms can also be picked up at the Minnesott Beach Town Hall, or downloaded from the Town-of-Arapahoe Facebook page.

Please complete the Patient Information section on Page 1 down to the Guarantor section, and then sign at the bottom of the form. On Pages 2 & 3, fill out all the requested information as best as you can. Some of that information will be provided by the testers. Bring the paperwork with you on Aug. 22 to facilitate testing, which should take just a few minutes.
