COVID-19 Testing at UPMC Children's Express Care

UPMC Children’s Express Care now offers rapid antigen COVID-19 testing at all of our locations. If you suspect your child has contracted COVID-19, we encourage you to use the ChildrensPgh app or our website to reserve your spot in line before you arrive at one of our 8 locations. An exam is required to receive a rapid antigen COVID-19 test.

Rapid, point-of-care diagnostic tests use a mucus sample from the nose and results are available within 15-minutes and will be used to diagnosis children with symptoms. The best time to test children for COVID-19, is shortly after they develop symptoms, within 0-5 days of the symptoms showing up.
