The Omicron variant is spreading fast. Its important that you get tested if you've been in contact with someone who has COVID-19 or if you have any symptoms and feel unwell.

The City of Philadelphia has setup numerous drive up testing sites all around the area to accommodate people. You won’t have to pay out-of-pocket to get a test. However, some sites may bill your insurance for a visit fee. At the site, you will be asked for identification and may also be asked for health insurance information. If you don’t have these, you can still get a test.

Please see the City website for more information.
