Free COVID-19 Testing will be available this week March 20-24 from 9:00am to 3:00pm at the Warren County Armory Civic Center. This site also provides Antigen Rapid Flu Tests in addition to the COVID-19 tests. The NC Department of Health and Human Services will close this testing site on Tuesday, March 28, 2023. Warren County is fortunate to have had this testing site operated by Optum Serve available to our residents for more than a year. Although this testing site is closing, residents can get free COVID-19 home tests from these locations: Warren County Health Department, Warren County Senior Center and the Warren County Parks and Recreation Department.
Community Health Opinion Survey
The Warren County Health Department has launched its latest Community Health Survey. The Community Health Survey is a tool used to identify key health needs and issues through data collection. As a part of that process, community members are asked to complete this survey. The questions are related to personal behaviors, risks, health goals, and priorities, as well as overall health. The Community Health Opinion survey questions are formed by a diverse representation of community citizens, businesses, and key stakeholders. The purpose of this assessment survey is to learn more about the health and quality of life of Warren County residents. The results from the surveys will be used to help develop plans for addressing major health and community issues in Warren County. All information will be confidential and respondents’ opinions and answer choices will not be linked to them in any way. This health assessment tool provides a way for communities to voice any unmet health needs or concerns. It is important to have this survey tool to collect data from the community as it helps Warren County Health Department and other county agencies with areas of improvement. This will allow Warren County to determine what social determinants of health the community prioritizes.
