COVID-19 INFORMATION
Updated 4.1.2020

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve in Delaware and Chester Counties. We know you must have questions and concerns about the virus and how your other healthcare needs will be met during this time.

This page will be updated regularly as new information emerges.

ChesPenn Health Services New Hours

All ChesPenn sites are open, however our hours are temporarily changing:

Eastside and Coatesville: M – Th: 9 am to 5 pm Friday: 9 am to 1 pm Upper Darby: M – F: 9 am to 5 pm.

We are temporarily eliminating Saturday hours.

Our dedicated staff are ready to provide care to you and your family. If you are coughing, please either wear a mask or cover your mouth with a tissue or napkin until we can provide a mask. Everyone will be asked at the entrance or at the front desk if they have a cough. If you and/or anyone accompanying you answer yes, you will be given a mask to wear during your visit.

Limited Visitors Policy

We request that patients coming in for an appointment bring no more than one additional person.  Parents accompanying children for pediatric visits please if at all possible leave siblings at home.

Telehealth Appointments Available

If you call to make an appointment, you will be offered the option of a telehealth visit. Telehealth can reduce the risk of exposure to the virus for you and for the community. With Telehealth a ChesPenn provider will call you to address your medical concerns by phone. Details of the process will be given to you when you make the appointment.

Walk-in Visits

ChesPenn continues to offer walk-in visits to our patients who need to see their provider.

Dental Services

We are currently only providing emergency dental services with limited exceptions.  This policy follows the recommendation of the American Dental Association.  Please bear with us.  If you are in pain, please call for an appointment.

Testing for COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

The CDC has developed criteria for identifying a “person under investigation (PUI)” for the coronavirus based on what is known about the previous coronavirus cases. Currently, the test is not available in U.S. hospitals or other primary care settings.

Testing criteria are changing daily. Currently, the CDC only recommends diagnostic testing of patients who have a fever or are symptomatic and have been in contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19. Please be advised: Testing for COVID-19 is not available at ChesPenn Health Services. If you feel you are at risk for coronavirus, please call to determine if you are a candidate for testing. If you require testing, we will provide instructions on how to get the test.

Any travelers who have recently returned from China, Iran, Europe and South Korea should self-monitor for respiratory symptoms. If you become sick, please call the Pennsylvania Department of Health at 1.877.PA.HEALTH (724.3258) and call your doctor’s office or the nearest emergency department to let them know you want to come in.  They will give you guidance.
