Testing Locations for Children
If you suspect your child may have COVID-19 and is showing symptoms such as cough or fever, do not go to your child’s pediatrician for testing unless instructed by the pediatrician to do so.
We have compiled a list of Memphis locations for public COVID-19 testing who will test children. Le Bonheur is not a public testing site.
Children who are scheduled for procedures at Le Bonheur will be required to have their test at Le Bonheur Children’s unless otherwise approved by the surgeon.
