How is a child tested for COVID-19?
A child is tested for COVID-19 the same way adults are tested. Using a long swab, the healthcare provider takes a sample from the back of the nose. This is called a nasopharyngeal swab or a nasal swab.
How to get a COVID-19 test for kids on-site?
Children can have rapid COVID tests done on-site or with the help of our mobile team or home service. Our mobile team can do on-site New York COVID testing for children’s events, schools, and sports teams.
What are the most common symptoms of COVID-19 in children?
The most common symptoms of COVID-19 in children are tiredness, headache, sleeping troubles, inability to focus, muscle and joint pain, and cough.
What are the different types of COVID-19 tests?
The different types of COVID-19 tests are the rapid antigen test, RT-PCR test, and the COVID antibody test. The rapid antigen and PCR tests both help detect if your child has an existing COVID infection.
The main difference is that rapid tests generate results faster than PCR tests, but PCR tests generate more accurate results than rapid tests.
On the other hand, the COVID antibody test detects if your child has antibodies that indicate they’ve had a COVID infection in the past.
Do most children develop mild symptoms after being infected with COVID-19?
Most children develop mild symptoms after being infected with COVID-19. However, if your child has been exposed to someone who has COVID or who you suspect to be infected, get your child tested immediately, with or without symptoms.
What should parents do while waiting for a child’s COVID-19 test results?
While waiting for a child’s COVID-19 test results, parents should keep their child at home and away from other family members. Follow CDC recommendations regarding quarantine measures. Call a healthcare provider when your child gets sick and experiences severe symptoms.

My daughter came in with stomach pain, and your doctor was able to diagnose that she probably had appendicitis. I took her to the emergency room, and she did have to have her appendix removed. Thank you so much for your help.

The staff and the doctors were all very kind and caring. I was very worried about my child’s health. I appreciate your clinic being open on Saturdays. This saved us a trip to the ER, which can be scary for a child. Thank you again!

My visits have been fantastic both times I’ve gone. The woman at the front desk was courteous and professional, and prompt. The nurse was excellent. Same treatment as the front desk and the smoothest phlebotomist going. The doctor was great, calm, thorough, polite, and knowledgeable. I wish he were my GP. Overall? 11 out of 10.

I’ve been to Nao Medical, I think, three times, and their staff is delightful. If you are in dire pain, they take you in as soon as possible, if not sooner. The offices and exam rooms are spotless. All of the medical staff is very knowledgeable, patient, and understanding. I highly recommend it.

I would like to thank a receptionist for being beyond kind and helpful. I came this Saturday morning, and she was the only one at the desk. Thank you so much for being a beautiful positive person. All the staff was also excellent.
