COVID-19 INFORMATION
Updated 6.11.2020

Testing Available at the Center for Family Health at Eastside

COVID-19 testing is now available for both ChesPenn patients and members of the community by appointment only.  Anyone not currently a ChesPenn patient may call our COVID-19 appointment line: 610-471-0279 for an appointment.  Community testing is offered on Tuesdays between 8:30 am and 12:30 pm through July 14.

ChesPenn patients must make an appointment for a telehealth visit and be referred for testing by your provider.  Testing for ChesPenn patients is offered on Thursdays from 9 am through noon.

All testing is walk-up only and conducted in the parking lot behind the health center.  Patients must wear a mask except while collecting their nasal swab sample.

Testing at our Upper Darby and Coatesville sites will be coming soon.

Wear Your Mask When You Visit.

Our dedicated staff are ready to care for you and your family.  Please wear a mask when you come to our site.  We will take your temperature and ask screening questions at the door.

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

The majority of our visits are currently conducted via Telehealth calls. Telehealth can reduce the risk of exposure to the virus for you and for the community. 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.  Based on your needs, we may redirect you to a telehealth visit.

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 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.
