COVID-19 Testing for Existing Esperanza Health Center Patients
Esperanza patients currently have the option to receive COVID-19 testing at all three of our sites. If you have questions about testing please call 215-302-3600.
You have symptoms of COVID-19 including cough or shortness of breath, or two of these symptoms: fever, chills, muscle aches, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell.
You have been exposed to someone with known or suspected COVID-19 (in close contact within 6 feet, for more than 15 minutes, without a mask). Wait until 7 days after being exposed to be tested assure accurate test results. This includes if you have participated in a large crowd gathering or protest. Regardless of the results, it is recommended to quarantine for 14 days after exposure to someone with known or suspected COVID-19, as it may take that long for symptoms to appear.
In the case of a group living or nursing home environment, some programs may require testing to enter the building, as part of a larger screening and prevention program in these specific high risk places.
