WARREN, Pa. – A COVID-19 testing clinic will be held at the Warren State Hospital from Dec. 10 through Dec. 14.
The clinic will be at the “Israel Building,” 677 Hospital Drive and will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Indoor and drive-thru options will be available.
No appointment is necessary and tests are free. Photo ID is required. Those who have insurance will be asked to provide their insurance card as well, but no copay will be charged. Patients must be ages three and older and are not required to show symptoms of COVID-19 to be tested.
Up to 450 patients can be tested per day. Mid-nasal passage swab PCR tests will be performed. The turnaround time for testing results is two to seven days after testing.
Customers utilizing the drive-thru site, should enter the State Hospital Grounds from North State Street and travel west to the Israel Building (the large apartment-style building on the north side of the campus). Once the test is completed, drive-in customers will be directed to leave via the traffic light on Route 62. These directions are to prevent bottlenecks due to traffic.
Walk-in customers will enter the Israel Building via the South Entrance and have their test administered in the entryway as they enter the building. There are bus stops on the State Hospital Grounds to allow for access via public transportation.
