COVID-19 coronavirus test kits still remain limited in the High Country with 105 kits available for sure in Watauga County through AppHealthCare. Ashe County has 77 tests available and Alleghany has 71 tests ready for sure.

In a bit of positive news, no new COVID-19 tests have been administered by AppHealthCare in the last two days in Watauga, Ashe or Alleghany counties. Watauga County now has 263 total tests conducted between AppHealthCare and outside agencies.

Changes to testing strategies continue as AppHealthCare and many other health organizations are starting to ramp up contact tracing.

“Our focus right now is on mitigation efforts and contact tracing after testing is done, more with areas that we have the greatest concern for spread like hospitals, healthcare workers, law enforcement, fire and EMS staff and those living in congregate settings. We are talking through what testing will look like as we strategize with state partners about reopening,” said Melissa Bracey, Director of Communications & Compliance at AppHealthCare.
