Dedicated COVID-19 test collection site established at Mount Nittany Health - Blue Course Drive; by appointment only

In our continued efforts to protect our patients, employees and community from the spread of COVID-19, Mount Nittany Health is adding a new measure to collect patient samples for COVID-19 testing from our non-emergent Physician Group patients.

Mount Nittany Health, in collaboration with Penn State Health, has established a dedicated COVID-19 test collection site at Mount Nittany Health - Blue Course Drive. This site will only be used by primary care patients from either health system who have received an appointment at the collection site by their primary care provider.

After receiving an appointment time, patients will visit the collection site set up outside of Mount Nittany Health – Blue Course Drive. Patients will be swabbed for testing without ever leaving their vehicles. Learn more at

Mount Nittany Health continues to rigorously follow guidelines from the CDC, including how test samples are collected and the proper wearing of personal protective equipment by staff at this site.
