UPMC Urgent Care: Caring for You During COVID-19

Sometimes, your care can’t wait.

At UPMC Urgent Care, we are committed to providing our communities with the safe in-person care they need when they need it most. Walk right in, as no appointment is needed.

The safety of our patients is always our top priority, both during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 Testing at UPMC Urgent Care

COVID-19 testing is available – with or without a referral or written order from a medical provider. UPMC Urgent Care can support your COVID-19 travel screening testing needs. If you have an order for a COVID-19 test, you can participate in our car-side testing program. If you do not have an order, you may be asked to come into the facility for an evaluation.

UPMC Urgent Care will honor a prescription for PCR (polymerase chain reaction) testing from a UPMC provider for patients with or without COVID-19 symptoms or for patients who are pre-procedure. “Asymptomatic” are patients without COVID-19 symptoms. “Symptomatic” patients are patient with COVID-19 symptoms.

Antigen testing, sometimes referred to as a “rapid test,” is limited to patients who are between age two (2) and 40. Patients outside of that age range can be tested via PCR. Medical referrals for a rapid antigen test are not accepted. For a rapid antigen test, a patient must be seen at the Urgent Care office by an Urgent Care provider.

Patients without an order must present to the nearest urgent care site for an evaluation before being tested. Online scheduling for testing is only available for patients with an existing order. Schedule a COVID-19 test online at select UPMC Urgent Care locations.

COVID-19 Test Without a Written Referral or Written Order

Patients who do not have a medical referral may request an evaluation. Based on the outcome of that evaluation, UPMC Urgent Care providers may order a COVID-19 test. Medical evaluations are provided for ‘walk-in’ patients only during regular business hours.

Contact UPMC Urgent Care staff for more information about COVID-19 tests.
