Sentara starts in-house COVID-19 testing at Norfolk General

Sentara Healthcare is now processing COVID-19 tests in-house at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital to help shorten the wait for test results.

Sentara’s goal is to incrementally increase testing capacity to at least 1,000 tests per day, with test results returning within 24 to 48 hours. The processing site at Norfolk General will also allow them to expand testing at all Sentara hospitals across Virginia and North Carolina.

Also announced on Monday, a new COVID-19 online assessment tool  can help people decide if they need to get a test.
