Lehigh Valley Health Network has established patient testing centers for coronavirus throughout the Lehigh Valley region. 

Brian Nester, president and CEO of LVHN, said that those with symptoms of coronavirus, or who think they may have been exposed to the virus, should first be screened by calling the nurse information line at 1-888-402-LVHN or download the myLVHN app for a video visit. Prescreening will ensure that patients can remain in their home as long as possible and only leave if testing is needed, he said.

If the patient is determined to have coronavirus symptoms, they will be directed to one of LVHN’s testing locations.

The test detects active disease and not if a patient has been exposed, according to LVHN. It is important that tests are reserved for only those who need them most.
