How to Get Tested for COVID-19

Penn Medicine’s drive-thru testing sites are accessible to anyone who is experiencing coronavirus-like symptoms. You do not need to be a Penn Medicine patient to be tested.

If you’re a Penn Medicine patient and are concerned about possible symptoms of the virus, we recommend that you contact your health care provider, who will provide more information about the test sites and can refer you to be tested. The referrals are sent electronically through Penn’s electronic medical records platform, so no paperwork is exchanged on-site. Please note: You do not need a referral from a provider to be tested.

If you are not a patient and are experiencing symptoms, we encourage you to call our toll-free coronavirus hotline at 833-983-1350. All non-Penn community patients can be screened at our testing sites. You should go to the site during operating hours, where you’ll be screened on a case-by-case basis and given instructions on how to register in the Penn system.

Once your referrals are checked or you’re registered in the Penn system, you'll speak with a physician or nurse – each of whom is fully clothed in CDC-recommended protective gear – who will ask you about your symptoms. If you match the CDC testing criteria, you'll get swabbed, and your samples will be sent to a lab for testing

Getting COVID-19 Test Results

The sample is sent either to a commercial laboratory for COVID-19 testing or to a lab at the University of Pennsylvania. You’ll automatically be texted after your visit with instructions on how to obtain results.

Patients who test positive for COVID-19 will receive a phone and be provided guidelines for self-quarantine.

Eligible patients will also be enrolled in COVID Watch, an automated text messaging system that provides 24/7 clinical feedback and support. Patients receive check-in messages every morning and afternoon. At any time, patients can also text the word “worse” to receive a call from a Penn Medicine clinician within 1 hour.

If you have any questions or need more information, please call your doctor or care team.
