As people are preparing for holiday gatherings this season, the PA Department of Health (PDH) is offering free COVID-19 testing and take-home tests at nearly a dozen locations across the state.
The testing is free and open to everyone. COVID-19 community-based testing sites are operated in partnership with AMI Expeditionary Healthcare (AMI) offering three forms of testing:
-point of care tests where tests are performed and results are analyzed on-site,
-distribution of at-home COVID-19 antigen tests, and
-administration of the mid-nasal passage swab PCR testing.
Individuals do not need to be experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 to be tested. Patients are encouraged to bring a photo ID, but ID is not required to be tested. Appointments are not necessary as registration will be completed on-site.
Tests can be picked up at the following IUs: 1, 4, 5, 8, 10, 11, 14, 17, and 19
