COVID-19 Testing Locations for Children

If your child is having any emergency warning signs such as trouble breathing, persistent chest pain or pressure, new confusion, inability to wake or stay awake or bluish lips or face, please seek emergency care immediately. Call 911 or call the emergency department and notify the operator that you are seeking care for someone who may have COVID-19. For the Le Bonheur ED, call 1-866-870-5570.

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.

Below are Memphis locations for public COVID-19 testing who will test children. Le Bonheur is not a public testing site.
