Due to the current surge in cases, we have been receiving an overwhelming number of phone calls requesting COVID-19 testing.
If your child has been exposed to COVID-19 and you would like to request a test for your child, you may do so by completing the online registration form directly with Radys Children’s Hospital here. Additionally, if you or anyone over the age of 18 needs a COVID-19 test, or Rady Children's is unable to accommodate the request for testing, testing is available through the County of San Diego for anyone 6 months and older, click here for more information and a list of available free testing sites.
If your child has been asked to quarantine, you can refer to the link to the San Diego Unified Decision Tree regarding quarantining for parent reference: click here.
If your child is having any symptoms and you would like your child to be evaluated by a provider, we are still offering appointments. Please call in advance for availability. If your child meets criteria for COVID-19 testing at that time, testing arrangements will be made.
As always, we are here for you and your family in this challenging time. If you have additional questions or would like more information, please don't hesitate to call our office and choose option 7 to get to our Medical Advice Line.
