UPMC Primary Care Walk-In Centers are open to treat minor illnesses and injuries. We are not able to test patients for with COVID-19. We can treat patients’ symptoms through a telephone call or telemedicine.
If you have respiratory symptoms, including fever, headache, sore throat, nasal congestion, and cough, you may call your doctor and ask to be setup for a telemedicine (video) visit through MyUPMC.
If you are experiencing severe symptoms such as trouble breathing, you should visit an emergency department in your community for immediate care. If you can, call ahead of time so they may prepare for your arrival and prevent the spread of any illness, but do not delay if you have severe breathing problems.
For the latest information on how to seek care, as well as more resources on how UPMC is managing COVID-19, please visit this official UPMC.com page.
