How can I test my children for lead?
Contact your physician or local health department. The Guilford County Public Health Department (336-845-7699) offers free blood lead testing for children under the age of 6. All children in Guilford County, under 6 years, are required by county ordinance to be tested for lead in their blood prior to entering any state approved or licensed child care facilities, child care home, preschool, nursery school, elementary school or other child care facilities.
