Officials with the Chester County Health Department announce latest testing and vaccination services to help the county’s efforts to control COVID-19.
The Chester County Health Department has finalized two additional locations for COVID-19 testing providers to establish free test sites. Free PCR testing is now available by appointment at the following locations:
- Chester County Government Services Center, West Chester
- Technical College High School Pennock’s Bridge Campus, West Grove
Both of these locations will be independently operated by the testing company Curative, which will manage test site locations, logistics, schedules and appointments.
Links to all test sites in and around Chester County can be found at chesco.org/covidtest. This link includes the Curative sites as well as pharmacies and urgent care centers. Retail pharmacies such as CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens and Walmart are administering tests at their locations free of charge.
At this time, there is a high demand for all COVID-19 PCR and antigen tests, which means that test providers are experiencing a tremendous volume of work, and most are requiring an appointment for testing. If you cannot find a test and are experiencing COVID-like symptoms, it is recommended that you stay home for five days and limit your interaction with others.
Report At-Home Positive Test Results
The Health Department is asking residents who have received a positive result from an at-home COVID-19 test to report the result to the Health Department. Reporting of positive-only results helps us to understand how the virus is spreading in our communities and ensures those who test positive receive the most current information regarding isolation and notifying their close contacts. These results are NOT included as part of our data reporting.
Report a Positive COVID-19 at Home Test Result
The Health Department continues to offer vaccine appointments at the Government Services Center in West Chester for first and second doses and boosters for eligible individuals.
