CORONAVIRUS TEST SCHEDULING

PEDIATRIC TESTING PROCESS

The easiest way to get COVID testing for your child is by saving their spot online by clicking the button above. This will allow you to schedule a convenient time for your visit, complete your paperwork ahead of your appointment, and message our staff with any questions.

When you arrive at one of our facilities, you will be able to check-in from your mobile phone and safely wait in your car. The clinic staff will message you with any questions or remaining registration steps, and they will notify you when a clean exam room is ready.

For the safety of our patients ages 21 and under, Urgent Care for Children enables patients to wait in their own cars but requires pediatric patients to be seen inside at all clinic locations.

COVID-19 TESTING FOR PROOF OF NEGATIVE COVID-19

Urgent Care for Children offers PCR COVID-19 testing to asymptomatic patients of all ages. We are happy to provide services for those in need of proof of a negative test for travel, return to work, camp admission, school or other similar scenarios for a flat rate of $95.

GETTING YOUR TEST RESULTS

Rapid tests will receive test results the same day you are tested. PCR tests are sent to a third-party lab and results are typically reported within two days, but can vary with volumes. PCR test results will be posted to your patient portal as soon as they are available, and a provider will call you to discuss any positive results.

COVID-19 TESTING FOR TRAVEL

Urgent Care for Children does not offer COVID-19 testing for travel or events at this time.

If you have any questions, please email [email protected] or call your nearest Urgent Care for Children location.
