Update: COVID-19 Testing Locations
BY KATIE CAVENDER
Whether you need COVID-19 testing because you feel ill, have an upcoming procedure or need COVID-19 clearance for travel, school or work – Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) is here to help. We have designated certain facilities to handle each type of testing:
COVID-19 testing for people who feel sick
If you are experiencing one or more COVID-19 symptoms as defined by the Centers for Disease Control, you should visit an LVHN COVID-19 Assess and Test location.
COVID-19 clearance for travel, work, school, etc.
If you do not have COVID-19 symptoms or no known exposure to the virus and need COVID-19 clearance for anything from camp to school or work, you can visit any LVHN COVID-19 Assess and Test location or select ExpressCARE locations without a provider order for testing. With a provider order, you also have the option to obtain testing at an LVHN Diagnostic Care Center, HNL Lab Medicine–West Hazleton or HNL Lab Medicine–Mountain Top. People in the Hazleton area are to use HNL Lab Medicine–West Hazleton or HNL Lab Medicine–Mountain Top.
Pre-procedural COVID-19 testing
If you require COVID-19 testing for an upcoming surgery or procedure, bring your medical order to a select HNL outpatient lab or LVHN Diagnostic Care Center. Visit the LVHN Pre-Procedure COVID-19 Testing page to see a full list of these locations.
ExpressCARE continues to provide walk-in urgent care for minor illnesses and injuries. See a full list of ExpressCARE locations.
