LVHN Opens Second COVID-19 Assess and Test Location at Coordinated Health-Hazle Township

BY JANE DANISH

Lehigh Valley Health Network has opened a second COVID-19 Assess and Test location inside the Coordinated Health-Hazle Township facility, 26 Station Circle, Hazle Township, to meet the increased demand for COVID-19 testing and the number of positive COVID-19 cases in the Greater Hazleton community. LVHN COVID-19 Assess and Test–Sherman Court, Hazleton, continues to provide COVID-19 testing. Both Assess and Test locations are operated by LVHN and Lehigh Valley Physician Group-Hazleton.

The following testing guidelines have been implemented to limit volume and patient exposure at these locations:

  • Only people with COVID-like symptoms will be tested at these facilities. LVHN is NOT offering COVID-19 testing to people who:

    • Do not have symptoms

    • Did not have a significant exposure to the virus

    • Require COVID-19 clearance testing for work, school or travel

  • COVID-19 testing for people who do not have symptoms or need clearance testing should visit local pharmacies such as CVS, RiteAid and Walgreens. We recommend calling ahead to see if the location near you provides this service.

  • A medical order for testing is strongly encouraged. Contact your primary care provider for assessment or call the LVHN nurse triage line at 888-402-LVHN (5846) PRIOR to coming to an LVHN testing location. You also may do an online screening at LVHN.org/virtualcare.

  • Bring personal ID and insurance information when being tested. Most insurances are accepted, including GHP Family and Geisinger Gold.
