Have COVID-19 Symptoms? Get Pre-screened Online or by Phone

What to do if you’re sick

If you think you have COVID-19 or may have been exposed to someone who does, stay home. We are providing free COVID-19 pre-screenings online and by phone. You must be in the state of Pennsylvania to receive pre-screening due to medical licensing regulations:

We want to pre-screen you via these technologies so that you remain in your own home and only need to leave if testing is needed. This pre-screening helps reduce the spread of COVID-19 and it helps keep your doctor's office open and available to provide other important care.

During the pre-screening, if our medical professionals determine you have COVID-19 symptoms, you will be directed to one of LVHN’s stand-alone COVID-19 Assess and Test locations. You will qualify for a test ONLY if you have symptoms (fever, cough and shortness of breath). The test detects active disease and cannot determine if you have been exposed. It is important to note that tests are reserved for those who need them most. 

COVID-19 Assess and Test Locations

LVHN has opened several stand-alone Assess and Test locations throughout the region. They have been established to minimize our community’s exposure to COVID-19. You must receive guidance via the nurse line, video visit or your doctor to be assessed and possibly tested. If you do not have insurance, you will receive a bill but you won’t be required to pay.

Waiting protocol to protect you and others

To further reduce risk of exposure to coronavirus, we are asking patients to wait in their car instead of in the waiting room at our Assess and Test locations.

When you arrive at the Assess and Test office, go inside and check in with the registration desk. You will be asked to provide your mobile phone number. Then you can return to your car and wait until the Assess and Test office calls your mobile phone, letting you know you can be seen.

By doing this, you will reduce your risk of exposure to coronavirus in a busy waiting area, as well as potentially protect others if you do happen to have coronavirus or another infection.
