North Central Health District COVID-19 Testing Appointment Update


COVID-19 Testing Scaling Back

Due to the substantial decrease in demand for COVID-19 testing, North Central Health District’s (NCHD) COVID-19 testing will be reduced in the 13-county district to three sites: Baldwin County, Hancock County and Houston County. The three sites will set appointments according to the following schedule:

To schedule appointments at Baldwin or Hancock County Health Departments, call the respective health department and speak with a representative or schedule an appointment using the Georgia DPH COVID-19 Testing Registration Form. Contact information for each location can be found at Appointments will be required for testing.

Houston County Health Department will continue its partnership with Mako Medical Laboratories to provide COVID-19 testing. Registration for testing can be found at After registering online, the person registered can come to the Houston County testing site any time during operating hours: Tuesdays & Thursdays, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This change is for the scheduling of COVID-19 testing only. Appointments for COVID-19 vaccination must be made by calling the district call line at 478-749-0179 or 1-844-987-0099.
