Covid-19 Testing for Kids & Adults

We offer Covid-19 PCR testing in Hinesville for kids and adults.

The PCR test is the most accurate way to determine if you have an active SARS-CoV-2 infection. It is administered via a nasal swab and can directly detect the virus’s genetic material. The sample is sent to a lab for processing, with results usually ready within a few days.

How to Get Tested

How do I book a Covid-19 test at PedsNow?

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, an appointment is required. Simply schedule a COVID-19 testing appointment online!

As a Pediatric clinic, we can perform Covid-19 testing for Kids (ages 0-20) during regular business hours (Monday – Friday 12PM – 8PM and Saturday & Sunday 10AM – 8PM.)

To help serve our community, we offer testing for Adults (ages 20+) everyday from 10AM -12PM.

How much does a Covid-19 test cost?
The cost for testing should be covered by most insurance plans. If you are uninsured, we offer the test at a self-pay price of $50 at the time of your visit.
My child needs a Covid test, and so do I. Can we get tested at the same time?
Yes, but an appointment is required. When a child or young adult up to age 20 is being tested, we can test adults from the same household at the same time.
When will I receive my test results?

In general, your results will be available within 48-72 hours.

Here’s how it works:

    1. We administer the nasal swab test at our clinic to collect your fluid sample.
    2. We send the fluid sample to a lab to check for the presence of coronavirus.
    3. The lab returns results within 48-72 hours.
    4. Get easy online access to lab results you can understand. To sign up, text: MyResults to 66349. Or, if you don’t have a smartphone go to: myresultsportal.pathgroup.com.

Please note: The lab is open Monday through Friday. If you get tested at PedsNow on Friday afternoon, Saturday or Sunday, your fluid sample will not be delivered to the lab until Monday. You will results 48-72 hours after Monday morning.

What are the symptoms of coronavirus in children?
Children, as a group, are less susceptible to covid-19. The illness in pediatric cases appears to be mild, with most cases presenting with symptoms of a common cold, such as:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Nasal congestion
  • Runny nose
  • Sore throat

Fever, cough and shortness of breath can occur in the more severe cases.

We’re committed to maintaining a safe, sanitized, and welcoming environment in which you can seek care for your child during the COVID-19 pandemic. There are extra safety measures in place to safeguard the health of our patients, staff, and community.

  • Enhanced cleaning measures: all surfaces (doorknobs, exam tables, drawers, etc) are wiped down at regular intervals and after each visit. We also perform a nightly deep clean.
  • Hand sanitizer available throughout the facility and we have reduced the number of surfaces you need to physically touch while in the clinic.
  • All staff wear appropriate PPE and face masks. We also ask patients and parents to wear face masks while in clinic.
