Department of Health Provides Update on COVID-19 Testing Across Commonwealth

The Department of Health provided an update on the 12-week pop-up COVID-19 testing initiative completed in early March 2021, highlighting the total number of patients tested. The department also provided an update on the current testing initiative with AMI Expeditionary Healthcare (AMI) to provide continued COVID-19 testing across the commonwealth.

"The virus is still present in our communities, which reinforces the need for continued testing across the state," Acting Secretary of Health Alison Beam said. "AMI has been a significant partner to the Department of Health by providing pop-up testing in counties across the commonwealth without a health department. Thanks to our ongoing partnership with AMI, we can continue offering COVID-19 testing to anyone who feels they need or want a test. Much of the news and attention has shifted to COVID-19 vaccines, but testing is still the best way to determine your exposure to and to ultimately stop the spread of COVID-19."
