Employees with Possible COVID19
Currently UPMC in central Pa. is testing only individual who are experiencing COVID19 symptoms. Walk in patients will not be tested.
If you have an employee with symptoms, their first step is to contact a primary health care provider or secure an on demand visit through virtual care. UPMC in central Pa. has waived the upfront $49 fee for all video visits from March 14, 2020, through June 11, 2020.
(If an employee does not have a provider, one can be assigned to them by calling the UPMC Nurse Team at 1-866-9-NURSE1 (1-866-968-7731) or 717-988-0074)
If the provider determines symptoms warrant COVID-19 testing, they will be directed to one of the UPMC Central Pa. testing sites. View list of all test sites.
