How to Get Tested for COVID-19

Penn Medicine's testing sites are accessible to anyone who is experiencing coronavirus-like symptoms. A Penn Medicine provider must place an order, or refer you, for you 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 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.

Once your referrals are checked or you're registered in the Penn system, you'll speak with a clinical provider 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.

If you are not a patient and are experiencing symptoms, please call 800-789-7366.

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 will be contacted after your visit with instructions on how to obtain results. Test results are immediately posted on your myPennMedicine account. If you do not have a myPennMedicine account, sign up here.

If you test positive for COVID-19, you will receive a phone call and be provided guidelines for self-quarantine. We have services available to take care of patients with COVID-19, such as COVID Watch, an automated text messaging system that provides 24/7 clinical feedback and support.

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