To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, all patients having surgery at a CHKD facility must be tested for the virus that causes the illness (SARS-COVV-2) before their procedures. The test requires only a quick swab of the nose and will be done at no cost to you. You can have the test done at the main hospital, located at 601 Children’s Lane, Norfolk, VA, 23507, or one of the CHKD Urgent Care Centers listed below.

Please see important information prior to your child’s surgery below:
