The COVID-19 testing site at Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre will close next week, the Pennsylvania Department of Health announced Friday.


Since the site opened on April 20, 2,048 people have been tested, and more than 7 percent were positive for COVID-19.


Testing for symptomatic Pennsylvanians can be scheduled through 4 p.m. on Friday, May 29. Registration is required . Go to health.pa.gov or call 1-877-PA-HEALTH.


“We are very pleased with the success of the site and that we were able to provide necessary testing to citizens of Northeast Pennsylvania,” Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine said. “However, it is time we redirect these resources to other areas of our state that are in need of assistance in this pandemic. The department will continue to work with other testing sites located across the commonwealth with the goal of making testing accessible to any symptomatic resident in Pennsylvania.”


A map of additional testing sites is available on the health department’s website.
