Lamont McClure, the Department of Community and Economic Development, Emergency Management Services and Lehigh Valley Hospital-Coordinated Health Allentown Hospital (LVH-CHA) announce the schedule for the drive-through testing center at 3100 Emrick Boulevard, Bethlehem Township during the week of the Thanksgiving holiday (November 23-28, 2020): Monday 10AM – 4PM, Tuesday 12N – 6PM, Wednesday 10AM-4PM, Closed Thursday, Friday 10AM-2PM and Saturday 9AM- 12N.
“The virus is still active in our area. Testing at our drive-through center shows a positive rate of 7.6%,” says Lamont McClure. “I encourage everyone to continue to wear masks, practice social distancing and get tested if they begin to show any symptoms.”
A Physician’s order is not required but, to be eligible for testing, individuals must report or display one or more CDC-recognized symptoms of COVID-19: fever, dry cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat or loss of taste and/or smell. The drive-through site is open to everyone, but only residents of Northampton County will have the cost of testing covered by the County if they do not have health coverage. All testing will be through HNL Lab Medicine unless insurance requires an alternate laboratory. Participants should bring a photo ID and their insurance card, if they have one, with them to the testing site.
