Evangelical’s COVID-19 test site moving
Evangelical Community Hospital’s COVID-19 alternative testing site will be opening at its new location on Monday, according to a recent press release.
Operating from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, testing will be completed at 1499 St. Mary Street, Lewisburg, at the corner of St. Mary and 15th streets, near the Central Susquehanna LPN Center.
Individuals should first call their primary care provider to share any symptoms or concerns related to COVID-19. The physician can then determine if testing is warranted and refer to the testing site.
The new test site is a drive-through location to maximize safety, according to the press release.
Patients will be directed to drive around the building and enter through a garage door. Staying in their cars, patients will be asked a series of questions and receive any tests ordered. They will then exit, driving out another garage door on the opposite side of the building.
The location change was made to have a more fixed location with proper utilities during the winter months when weather can be unpredictable, according to the press release.
Any questions can be directed to Evangelical’s COVID-19 hotline at 570-522-4530.
