Jefferson Health and the City of Philadelphia opened a new COVID-19 test site in Northwest Philadelphia to offer free, twice-weekly testing for the next six months

People experiencing symptoms of the coronavirus (cough, sneeze, sore throat, shortness of breath) will be given priority in testing. Those who are asymptomatic but suspect or know they were exposed to the virus should wait seven days (the average incubation period for COVID-19) to get tested, according to Jefferson Health.

Jefferson plans to follow up with every patient who takes a test — regardless of the result — to share more information about ongoing safety measures they can follow. A medical professional will talk to patients who test positive about how to self-isolate, monitor symptoms, and access additional care.

Testing is free for all patients — even those who are uninsured. Patients who have health insurance should bring their insurance card, and everyone should bring an ID.

Walk-up patients are welcome, but appointments are encouraged and can be scheduled by calling 833-533-3463 (833-JEFF-4ME).
