Your Coronavirus Resource

Due to increased demand and in line with recent recommendations from Allegheny County’s health department, patients must be experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 to receive a test across all AHN testing sites.

AHN has a new exam room — any room in your home.

Video visits are a great way to stay connected with your primary care doctor and safely get the care you need. Use MyChart to schedule a video visit with your primary care doctor or get help 24/7 from another AHN provider.

What do I do if I think I have Coronavirus?

If you have symptoms like a fever or cough, the safest place to be — for you and everyone else — is in your home. To get care, you have a few different options. 

Please note: If you’re having a true medical emergency, Coronavirus-related or not, dial 911 or visit your closest emergency department. AHN has taken extra precautions within our facilities to keep all patients as safe as possible. Don’t delay receiving medical attention — we’re here to help.
