The City of Philadelphia has launched a new testing site finder to help people locate COVID-19 testing sites. The finder is available in six languages, and the map will be updated regularly as new testing sites change. Testing sites are operated by many different organizations, including hospitals, urgent care clinics and pharmacies, as well as the City of Philadelphia. Please go to the individual site’s contact information for more details. Testing for COVID-19 is free and never requires proof of citizenship.

Who should get tested:

The Philadelphia Department of Public Health recommends getting tested for COVID-19 if:

  • You have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 (wait until 7 days after exposure to ensure test accuracy) OR
  • You have symptoms of COVID-19, including:
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath OR
    • Two of these symptoms: fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell

Testing may be prioritized at certain sites for people with the above symptoms who:

  • Have chronic medical conditions.
  • Reside or work in congregate settings, including nursing homes, behavioral health facilities, shelters, and prisons.
  • Are healthcare, public safety, or other essential workers (such as Police, Fire, EMS, mass transit, grocery and pharmacy staff).

Find out if you’re eligible

Each testing site has its own requirements, and that information is included for each location on the map. No testing sites require payment, insurance or proof of citizenship. But some sites may:

  • Limit testing to people who meet certain criteria.
  • Require an appointment.
  • Require a referral from a healthcare provider.
  • Ask you to stay in your car (for drive-thru sites).

Be sure to call ahead since most sites require an appointment. Phone numbers are available on the map.

How to use the site

  • Search for a testing site by address in the search bar.
  • Click on a map location for specific site information.
  • Filter your search by days of operation, and if the site is drive-thru or walk-up.
