Last Updated on March 18, 2020 8:15 am

If you suspect that you may have COVID-19, we have arranged a safe, convenient, and cost-effective option for your screening, so that you can avoid unnecessary hospital or clinic visits.

1. Connect with RelyMD online at on your computer or mobile device.

Please use Coupon Code: BEWELLARHS for your $49 visit. Your initial screening will be with a board-certified physician who will determine if your symptoms require you to be tested.

2. If the RelyMD physician determines that you meet the criteria for testing, he/she will help you make your appointment at a testing location in Watauga or Avery County.

Go to the testing location at your appointed time. Please DO NOT travel to the testing location without an appointment.

Once you arrive, a staff member will meet you curbside at your vehicle and administer the tests — no need to get out of your car. Your test will be sent to a lab for confirmation. You’ll be instructed to self-quarantine until your test results are returned.

3. If your test is positive for COVID-19, you will need to be isolated for 14 days.

The testing facility will provide education for you and your family whether you test positive for the virus or not.

By using this simple screening and testing process, we can screen you as quickly as possible while keeping our community safe and healthy. Thank you for helping to stop the spread of the virus.
