Case management services and emergency assistance are still available.

There will not be PrEP clinic, client activities, food pantries or support groups until otherwise stated by AIDS Resource.

 Message from the PA Department of Health 

 The Division of HIV Disease and STD Program are providing guidance in regards to contractual HIV and STD testing and Treatment Services in light of the COVID-19 response and impact in Pennsylvania. As a result, the following clarifications are being provided to you in regards to contractual expectations under the HIV/STD Participating Provider Agreement: 

  1. Syphilis, Chlamydia/Gonorrhea, HIV Outreach and non-healthcare targeted testing are suspended until further notice. 
  2. If your site is funded through a PPA to provide PrEP clinical visits, use your discretion for the continuation of these services.
  3. If your site provides STD clinical services, use your discretion for the continuation of these services. If STD clinical hours are being restricted or cancelled, we ask that you immediately notify Kris King at krisking@pa.gov . 

Special Note: Clients seen at your facility that are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms (e.g., fever, cough, and difficulty breathing) are to be immediately referred to their medical provider and advised to call ahead to help the medical provider prepare. The CDC urges those who may have been exposed to avoid public places and limit contact with other people. If the client does not have a private medical provider, call 1-877-PA-HEALTH (1-877-724-3258) for further guidance.
