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?
My child needs a Covid test, and so do I. Can we get tested 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:
- We administer the nasal swab test at our clinic to collect your fluid sample.
- We send the fluid sample to a lab to check for the presence of coronavirus.
- The lab returns results within 48-72 hours.
- 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.
