CDC-recognized symptoms no longer required to receive a COVID-19 test at drive-through site


Lamont McClure and Lehigh Valley Hospital-Coordinated Health Allentown Hospital (LVH-CHA) announce that, beginning April 5, 2021, any Northampton County resident or individual employed by a Northampton County business will no longer have to report CDC-recognized symptoms before receiving a COVID-19 test at the drive-through site in Bethlehem Township.


“The recent spike in COVID-19 infections in Northampton County is alarming,” says Lamont McClure. “We are expanding this testing to include asymptomatic people in the hope that we can keep them home while they are infectious and slow the spread of the virus.”


The drive-through testing site is located at Coordinated Health, 3100 Emrick Boulevard, Bethlehem, PA. Hours of operation are: Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 9:00AM – 4:00PM, Tuesday/Thursday from 11:00AM – 6:00PM and Saturday from 9:00AM – 12:00PM.


The 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.
