Pre-Procedure Testing for COVID-19

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, patients having designated procedures, surgery, sedation, or anesthesia at a CHKD facility must be tested for the SARS-CoV-2 virus before their procedure. The test can be done at any of our laboratory locations on a walk-in basis. No appointment is required. Click here for a list of testing locations and additional information prior to your surgery appointment.
