“We’ve recognized the need for additional COVID-19 testing since the onset of this pandemic and are grateful that we now have the capacity to provide this testing to our first responder community. The value of knowing is priceless for first responders,” stated Dr. Shauna Gulley, Chief Clinical Officer for Centura Health. “Our partners on the front line are presented with unique challenges because of the nature of their work and we want to ensure that they have the support and information they need to protect themselves, their loved ones and the community.”

Responder Agencies interested in offering this to their teams should email: CenturaLovesFirstResponders@centura.org to receive needed forms to begin these visits. These first responders will need to bring a special form with them when coming for their test.
