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.
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 have 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.
We now offer patients to schedule appointments online or walk-in. Patients do not have to have a provider visit. If they do not have an order, one of our staff are able to order the test for the patient. Medical evaluations are provided for ‘walk-in’ patients during regular business hours.
