Department of Health opening regional drive-thru in Berks and Lebanon counties


HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — The Department of Health is opening regional drive-thru, outdoor walk-up, and indoor walk-in COVID-19 testing clinics in Berks, Indiana, Lackawanna, Lawrence, and Lebanon counties beginning Saturday, February 13.

“While recent decreases in daily positive cases are promising, they don’t negate the need for testing,” Acting Secretary of Health Alison Beam said. “We encourage anyone who feels they need or want a test to take advantage of these free pop-up testing locations.”

The department says it believes that increased testing will assist in determining the prevalence of the virus and assist the county in moving forward.

Testing will be available daily from 9:00 a.m. through 6:00 p.m. starting Saturday, February 13 through Wednesday, February 17.

The testing site locations and addresses are as follows:

  • Berks County:  Reform Congregation Oheb Sholom Synagogue, 555 Warwick Drive, Wyomissing, PA, 19610;
  • Indiana County:  Indiana Mall (Former Bon Ton parking area near the Warren Rd. entrance), 2334 Oakland Ave., Indiana, PA, 15701;
