Pennsylvania Department of Health launches COVID-19 testing sites in faith-based communities

Coronavirus in Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania Department of Health is teaming up with faith-based communities in the state to launch COVID-19 testing centers.

These testing centers will allow for more accessible testing in already existing, close-knit communities. Testing events will occur outdoors where participants may drive through or walk up to receive free testing.

Registration will be encouraged but an appointment is not necessary to be tested. Participants should bring a Photo ID. Test results are expected to be available in two to three days after the test is administered.
