Williamsport UPMC test site opens
A COVID-19 test is picked up by couriers as a UPMC security officer oversees at the COVID-19 Collection Site at 609 Brandon Ave. near Williamsport Regional Medical Center Monday. The site is not open to the public with no walk-in patients allowed. If testing is sought, the patient must be evaluated by their care provider, who must assess the need and contact the local UPMC infection prevention team. Trained UPMC staff will collect specimens safely in personal protective equipment that includes gowns, gloves, and N95 masks or respirators.
