Guidelines for COVID-19 Testing at LVHN
Do you need to get a COVID-19 test? Where you go depends on why you need a test. Here are some simple guidelines.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms:
If you have symptoms such as fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, muscle aches, or other cold and flu like symptoms, stay home and do any of the following:
Contact your primary care physician
Call the MyLVHN Nurse Information line at 888-402-LVHN.
While you don’t have to be a legal resident of Pennsylvania, due to medical licensing regulations you must be in the state of Pennsylvania in order to do a video visit. During your virtual visit, you will be screened to determine if you need a COVID test. If it is determined you do need a test, one will be ordered and you will be guided to the appropriate testing location at ExpressCARE, Coordinated Health or LVHN Assess and Test.
If you do not have COVID-19 symptoms, but have had significant exposure:
If you do not have symptoms but have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, call 888-402-LVHN (5846) to talk with a nurse who can provide an order and refer you to the appropriate testing location.
If you need a COVID-19 clearance test:
If you need a test for travel or employer clearance, please contact one of the major pharmacies in our area. Rite Aid, Walgreens and CVS provide this service. We recommend calling ahead to ensure the pharmacy location you choose performs testing.
