Regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Please be advised that the Sto-Rox Neighborhood Health Council, Inc. is actively engaged with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Allegheny County Department of Health. If you are a patient of Sto-Rox Family Health Center or Hilltop Community Health Center, with mild to severe respiratory illness with symptoms of fever, cough, shortness of breath, please do not show up at the clinic without first calling our office at 412-771-6462.

Sto-Rox Neighborhood Health Council is a partner with the Allegheny County Health Department to provide accessible COVID-19 testing.  Please go to the link below to register for a COVID-19 test:

http://alleghenycovidtesting.com/

The link provides information about available testing at multiple locations across Allegheny County, including SRNHC health center sites.

We offer a very simple “self-test” to all.  You will be swabbing the inside of your mouth to collect a sample.  To ensure you have the most successful test experience (and results) possible, please remember the following:

  • Have your mask on when you arrive.
  • Maintain 6 feet distance from others
  • Do not smoke, vape, eat, chew snuff, or chew gum within 20 minutes of the test.

At the time of the testing, you will be asked to cough (5) hard, deep times before collecting your sample.

We suggest that you arrive early and if you have a smartphone, please bring it with you for registration purposes while you wait in line.

Test results will be sent to your email, usually within 3- 5 days following your test.  

The Health Center, our patients, and the community must all work together to reduce transmission of this disease. These attachments will educate you about the virus and provide you with tips you should follow to protect yourself and your family.
