How are people referred to LVHN COVID-19 Assess and Test locations?

Individuals are sent to LVHN COVID-19 Assess and Test locations in a number of ways, including by their primary care provider, if they have been pre-identified as having symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) when seeking care at an LVHN or LVPG practice, or who have been pre-screened by:

  • E-Visit: A thorough questionnaire-based assessment that is completed on MyLVHN. Submitted information will be reviewed by an LVPG health care provider. To access an E-Visit, go to MyLVHN.org or the MyLVHN app. Learn more at LVHN.org/Evisit.
  • LVHN Video Visit: A secure video visit with an LVHN health care provider. Access An LVHN Video Visit through the MyLVHN app. Learn more at LVHN.org/videovisit.
  • Phone hotline: 888-402-LVHN (5846) provides callers with an over-the-phone COVID-19 screening with a nurse.
