Free COVID-19 Testing Offered in Preparation for Holiday Gatherings

11/21/2022

Harrisburg, PA - As people are preparing for holiday gatherings this season, the Department of Health is offering free COVID-19 testing and take-home tests at nearly a dozen locations across the state.  

“We want to make it as convenient as possible for people to access COVID-19 testing so they can help protect family and friends during holiday gatherings,” said Acting Health Secretary and Pennsylvania Physician General Dr. Denise Johnson. “If you are not feeling well, stay home to avoid spreading illness. We also recommend testing before contact with someone at high risk for severe COVID-19.” 

The testing is free and open to everyone. The following COVID-19 community-based testing sites are operated in partnership with AMI Expeditionary Healthcare (AMI) offering three forms of testing:    

  • point of care tests where tests are performed and results are analyzed on-site,   
  • distribution of at-home COVID-19 antigen tests, and   
  • administration of the mid-nasal passage swab PCR testing.  

Individuals do not need to be experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 to be tested. Patients are encouraged to bring a photo ID, but ID is not required to be tested. Appointments are not necessary as registration will be completed on-site.
