Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) remains vigilant as the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) evolves, and we are committed to being your partner in health in these unprecedented times. As a leader in infection control and prevention, LVHN is taking extraordinary steps to deliver the smart, comprehensive care you need through new ways to screen, assess, test and keep you safe.
COVID-19 Screening and Testing
If you think you have COVID-19 or may have been exposed to someone who does, stay home. We are providing COVID-19 screenings online and by phone. You must be in the state of Pennsylvania to receive screening due to medical licensing regulations:
- Complete an E-Visit (detailed questionnaire visit submitted to a provider) by visiting MyLVHN.org or your MyLVHN app.
- Call the MyLVHN Nurse Information line at 1-888-402-LVHN.
- Complete an LVHN Video Visit by downloading the MyLVHN app.
We want to screen you via these technologies so that you remain in your own home and only need to leave if testing is needed. This screening helps reduce the spread of COVID-19.
During the screening, our medical professionals will determine if you have COVID-19 symptoms and if you should receive testing. If needed, you will be directed to an LVHN COVID-19 Assess and Test location. The COVID-19 test detects active disease and cannot determine if you have been exposed.
If you have a medical order to receive a COVID-19 test in preparation for an upcoming procedure, and you do not have any symptoms of illness, read our pre-procedure COVID-19 testing guidance.
COVID-19 Assess and Test Locations
LVHN has opened Assess and Test locations throughout the region. They have been established to minimize our community’s exposure to COVID-19.
Waiting protocol to protect you and others
To further reduce risk of exposure to coronavirus, we are asking patients to wait in their car instead of in the waiting room at our Assess and Test locations.
When you arrive at the Assess and Test office, go inside and check in with the registration desk. You will be asked to provide your mobile phone number. Then you can return to your car and wait until the Assess and Test office calls your mobile phone, letting you know you can be seen.
By doing this, you will reduce your risk of exposure to coronavirus in a busy waiting area, as well as potentially protect others if you do happen to have coronavirus or another infection. If you need care for another condition, you can continue to visit any open ExpressCARE location or LVPG practice.
Your COVID-19 test results
Lehigh Valley Health Network makes it convenient to view your test results, so you can focus on feeling better. After your COVID-19 test, there’s no need to wait for a provider to call you. You can view your test results and quarantine instructions as soon as they are available on the MyLVHN patient portal. If you receive positive test results, an LVHN colleague will reach out to you with guidance. Should you have questions about your results, please call 484-273-4368.
MyLVHN can be accessed from a computer or through the MyLVHN mobile app (available for Apple or Android devices). It allows you to schedule appointments, pay bills and review your medical information all in one place.
