How and where to get COVID-tested with LVHN

Whether you have symptoms of COVID-19, had a high-risk exposure or just need clearance for travel, you need to have a prescription in order to get a COVID-19 test. The easiest and fastest way to get a prescription is to stay home and schedule a virtual visit. 

Here’s how to get a prescription for a COVID-19 test

By you seeing a provider from home, we can expedite your testing when you get to the appropriate testing site. Virtual options to obtain a script include:

  • Nurse line: 888-402-LVHN (5846), option 4
  • COVID-19 video visit:
    • To be seen right away, use the “On Demand ExpressCARE Video Visit” option through your MyLVHN app. This option will place you in a virtual waiting room to be seen by a doctor. Click the “On Demand ExpressCARE Video Visit” found under the “Menu” bar.
    • To schedule an ExpressCARE Video Visit appointment through your MyLVHN app at a time that is convenient for you, click “schedule an appointment or video visit” under the menu bar. Then choose the “ExpressCARE Video Visit with provider, video visit” option. Click "schedule now" and fill out the questions to be given a list of available appointment times.
  • Complete an E-Visit (detailed questionnaire visit submitted to a provider) by visiting MyLVHN.org or your MyLVHN app. E-Visits can be found by clicking the “Menu” icon and then “E-Visits” (found under “Find Care” section of the Menu).

What if I don’t have symptoms (I’m asymptomatic) or need a clearance test?
