How Do I Get My Child Tested?
It’s easy! To reduce our staff’s exposure, we ask all patients to register for a telemedicine appointment prior to being tested. During this visit, our rockstar providers will take your child’s patient history and evaluate their symptoms. Then they will transfer you to a Little Spurs location to be tested!
Do you need multiple children tested? Make a telemedicine appointment for each child.
Please complete your paperwork as soon as possible so we can see you at your designated time.
If your child is ill, they may still be evaluated in clinic. But if they are experiencing no symptoms, we will simply swab your child and then you can go home to wait for your results! When you arrive at Little Spurs, please stay in your car. Phone numbers are posted for you to call upon your arrival, and you will be escorted into the clinic. Everyone must be wearing a mask (except for children under 2 years old).
You will be contacted with your lab results within 2-3 days! If you don’t hear from us within 2-3 days, please call the clinic where you were seen or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

You don’t have to get tested if you don’t have symptoms. If you do get tested, then wait at least 8 days from when you were exposed (longer is better). It takes time for the SARS CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 to become detectable, even with the sensitive tests being used. For example, getting a test the day after an exposure gives you a 100% chance of a negative test even if you later develop infection. If you were within 6 feet of someone with COVID-19 for 15 minutes or more, then you should quarantine for 14 days from when you were exposed and stay separated from other people in your household. If you develop symptoms, then get tested—especially if you have obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, chronic lung disease or other chronic conditions.
Do not go to the emergency department unless you have a medical emergency, such as difficulty breathing.
