MainStreet Family Care will open its first North Carolina location in Locust on June 2.

From urgent care and COVID-19 testing to primary care, MainStreet Family provides medical care for the entire family. Patients 1-year old and up can visit seven days a week.

MainStreet Family Care is looking forward to enhancing the availability of COVID-19 testing for those who need it. The Locust clinic will offer rapid COVID-19 testing, allowing patients to receive their results in under 20 minutes.

“We want to make it simple for people that really need testing to receive it,” MainStreet’s CEO Sam Eskildsen said. “There might be multiple areas to receive testing in bigger cities, but in rural North Carolina, testing can be more difficult to come by. If people are experiencing multiple symptoms associated with COVID-19 or have had direct exposure to someone who tested positive, they need to know they have somewhere to go.”

The Locust location, at 130 James Ave., will be open late nights and weekends. New patients can register online during regular business hours. Online registration is available from home for patients. MainStreet’s contactless registration system also allows urgent care and primary care patients to register from their vehicles outside the clinic using their cellular devices and QR codes.

In addition to primary care, urgent care and COVID-19 testing, MainStreet offers occupational health services.
