Centre County Testing Site

In Centre County, a free COVID testing center re-opened this week.

The testing site will soon be moving to another site, though.

The county has funded testing centers operated by AMI Health Expeditionary Health Care at the Nittany Mall.

The latest is located inside the former Bon-Ton store site and in December, the number of folks being tested steadily increased.

That site reopened Tuesday and the county’s latest contract with AMI is through this month.

Thursday, the county commissioners announced the testing center will have to move after next Saturday, due to changes in the availability agreement with the mall.

Testing centers in State College and across the state are an important element in contact tracing programs that are tracking the COVID virus.

Officials say the contact tracers can also help identify other health services that may be needed.

Centre County is using federal COVID relief money, CARES Act funding, to pay the $316,000 contract for the January testing site.

It’s open Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and no appointment is necessary
