READING, PA. – To increase access to testing in our community, Berks Community Health Center (BCHC) now offers appointments for COVID-19 testing to any resident regardless of insurance, ability to pay or whether they have symptoms or not. You do not have to be a current patient of BCHC to be tested. Testing is available by appointment only for the 838 Penn Street location.

Residents can make an appointment by calling 610–988-4838 ext. 2031. During the call, patients will be placed on a screening schedule and will be called back by a health professional who will take the information necessary to begin the process and schedule a convenient time for the test.

While you don’t need symptoms to get tested, symptoms that may warrant a test include cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, fatigue, muscle ache, sore throat, headache, vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, recent loss of taste or smell, or confusion, particularly in older adults.
