COVID-19 Testing

Children who have mild symptoms are best cared for by their primary care doctors, or, if they are unable to get an appointment, in an urgent care setting. Children who have exposures but no symptoms can be tested at alternative testing sites using this Virginia Department of Health link.

As always, if your child has severe illness or trouble breathing, call 911.
