Coronavirus Testing - Pennsylvania

CDC Case

Report Form

Stay home and call your doctor for advice if you are feeling sick, but would not have sought care under normal circumstances.


If you feel sick and believe you need immediate care, call your doctor or seek medical care. If you do not have a regular doctor, call your local health department or 1-877-PA-HEALTH.


The state typically only tests people who are symptomatic. If you are not symptomatic, decisions are made on a case by case basis.


Pennsylvania has both public and private labs that can conduct tests. The state health department approves tests for the state lab and is prioritizing patients who are sick and:


  • have contact with a confirmed case


  • reside in a congregate care setting


  • are a health care worker


  • are hospitalized with relevant symptoms and have no alternative diagnosis


Results from the state lab can be available in less than a day — testing takes on average four to six hours.


For more coronavirus information, call 1-877-PA-HEALTH (1-877-724-3258) or visit the Pennsylvania Department of Health's website.
