COVID-19 Updates

Updates about COVID-19 as of January 18th, 2022 from LCH Health and Community Services.

For Your Safety

The safety of our patients and our staff is our priority.

When you Arrive at LCH:

  • LCH has made the decision to keep our doors locked at each of our locations. This will help to better control the traffic of patients coming in to our waiting rooms. Each location now has a doorbell. We are asking patients to ring the doorbell and wait for a Member Relations Specialist (MRS) to open the door.

  • The MRS will then ask a series of questions related to COVID-19 symptoms and take your temperature.

  • Every person who comes in to an LCH facility will be asked to wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose upon arrival.

  • At this time, we ask that you please come alone to your appointment. Patients who require additional assistance, such as children, patients with special needs, or elderly patients, can come to their appointments with one support person.

  • We will look a little different, with our extra gowns and masks. It is still us under there!

Thank you for your continued understanding as we work together to fight COVID-19.

Stay up-to-date with current safety guidelines for you and your family: visit www.CDC.gov/coronavirus for more information.  Read our Patient FAQ about common COVID-19 questions as of January 18th, 2022. The CDC and Pennsylvania Department of Health continue to require wearing of masks in health care settings, whether or not you are vaccinated. Thank you for wearing a mask during your visit to our health centers!

Vaccines

As a Federally Qualified Health Center, LCH is proud to be a Pennsylvania Vaccine Provider site for the distribution of COVID-19 vaccine. We are administering the Moderna vaccine to current patients.

Vaccines save lives. Protect yourself, your family, and your community.
