COVID-19 Testing Locations in the Community

Last updated: 9/02/2021

The rise in COVID-19 cases among young people has caused an increased call for screening and testing in the area, especially with children returning to school.

At Cook Children’s, the need for testing has placed significant demand on staff throughout the system. Currently, all Cook Children’s primary care doctor locations, Urgent Care Centers and Neighborhood Clinics are providing tests.

However, Cook Children’s is asking that all parents call to make an appointment prior to bringing their children in for testing. With the rise in testing, these locations are working to make sure their supplies meet the heavy demand. That is not always possible right now.

As an alternative, there are other testing sites available for parents and their children in the area. If your child does not have symptoms or is experiencing typical, minor symptoms for a number of illnesses, please consider these locations:

These self-collection kits and tests are available either by prescription or over-the-counter, without a prescription, in a pharmacy or retail store. At present, self-collection kits and tests are used for the detection of current infection.
