Is all the lab testing performed there at the Health Department?

No, although some of the laboratory testing is performed on site, the laboratory uses other reference laboratories to perform some testing. The primary reference laboratories that we use are Quest Diagnostics and the North Carolina State Laboratory located in Raleigh, North Carolina.
