COVID-19 testing is available on a limited basis through providers in Philadelphia. However, existing test sites do not reach all people for whom testing might be beneficial. One of the most important steps to lifting some of the social distancing measures currently in place is increasing access to rapid testing throughout Philadelphia. The City, in partnership with PMHCC, Inc., has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) to provide funding to organizations that are interested in establishing Community Testing Programs. The goal of the Community Testing Program is to make it easier for individuals who have limited access to healthcare to get tested. The City is looking for organizations that can provide consistent and accessible testing in neighborhoods throughout the city.
