- Care Services
For the safety and wellbeing of our patients and staff, CareSouth Carolina will NO longer be permitting family members or friends to accompany patients into the medical office. Only those who are seeing a provider, seeking medical care or picking up a prescription are permitted. A guardian/caregiver of a patient is still permitted.
***FREE COVID-19 TESTING KITS AVAILABLE***

CareSouth Carolina COVID Testing Guidelines
At CareSouth Carolina, we are committed to improving the health and well-being of everyone, therefore we will be implementing new COVID-19 testing guidance to ensure that we are following the most updated guidance from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control).
1) If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 90 days, retesting is NOT recommended. If you have developed new onset of symptoms or need clearance to return to work, you will be offered a telehealth appointment to discuss with a provider.
2) If you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 but DO NOT have any symptoms, you need to wait at least 5 days from exposure to be tested. Testing earlier than 5 days after exposure is ONLY recommended if you are having symptoms.
3) If you have NOT been exposed to someone with COVID-19, but you ARE having symptoms, get tested.
4) If you have NOT been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and you are NOT having symptoms, you may still get tested but ONLY if you have not been tested in the last 5 days.
*We offer both rapid antigen and PCR (send-out) testing. Rapid antigen testing availability varies by location and current supply. In certain circumstances, PCR (send-out) testing may be more appropriate for your situation and may be the only test offered to you.
