COVID-19 screenings for patients and visitors
We are screening patients and visitors before they enter our facilities to help flatten the curve of COVID-19 and keep our children, families and team members healthy. Anyone without a VCU Health System badge will be screened.
Screenings are quick and painless:
1 – We’ll ask if you or your child are experiencing cough, sore throat or difficulty breathing
2 – We’ll quickly take your and your child’s temperature with a no-touch thermometer
If you or your child have any of the symptoms above, or have a temp of 100.4 or higher, we’ll ask you to put on a mask and a member of our clinical team will determine the next steps. We're here to care for our kids and families - and we appreciate your cooperation during these times of change.
My child has symptoms of COVID, what do I do?
We offer convenient, drive-thru COVID-19 testing for children of all ages who have been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Testing is done via a simple swab of the inside of the nose and results are typically available within 24-48 hours.
- Tests can be ordered by your regular CHoR provider, or through our virtual urgent care program
- Testing is available Mondays through Fridays (except Thursdays), 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
- Once you’ve confirmed with your provider you can drive up! You do not need to schedule your child’s test
- NOTE: You cannot arrive for a test without first confirming with your provider
