ALBION — Due to the rise of Coronavirus cases, there is an increasing demand for tests. Many of our health centers including Albion, Brockport, and Hornell provide testing for people with and without symptoms.

At the Corfu, Batavia, and Alexander locations we are testing people with symptoms who meet the criteria. To keep everyone safe, all testing is by appointment only.

Covid-19 swab tests are available at our health centers outdoors to ensure safety for patients and staff, however, if you have symptoms, please call in advance for arrival instructions. Test results are typically back in 3-5 days but in some cases can take up to seven business days.

“We want the community to know that Oak Orchard Health is here for them should they need a Covid-19 test. We have several testing locations and options including a free LetsGetChecked Self-Collection Kit,” said Dr. Mary Obear, MD, PhD, Chief Clinical Officer, Oak Orchard Health.

Regarding payment, Oak Orchard starts by billing the insurance companies (co-pays may apply), and should it not be covered, we also offer a sliding fee scale discount based on family size and annual income. For questions or more information, please call (585) 637-3905 ext. 221.

The LetsGetChecked Covid-19 Self Collection Kits were purchased by Oak Orchard but are being given out free to our patients 18 years of age or older. They can be used at home but are in limited supply. The kits can be used when appropriate based on current testing guidelines. The test kit comes with a UPS next day air return shipping label to send your sample back to the lab. They aim to deliver your results within 24-72 hours of your sample being received in their laboratory.
