Coronavirus Testing at Tosa Pediatrics:
Testing at our office is by appointment only during our normal clinic hours, Monday-Friday 9-5 and Saturday 8-10. Tests can be scheduled as a nurse only/swab only visit or with one of our medical providers. Our test is a PCR test that requires both a nasopharyngeal (back of the nose) and oropharyngeal (back of throat) swab.

- Should I be tested? Please get tested if you have symptoms, were in close contact with someone who is positive (see close contact below), or were instruced by public health to be tested
- What should I do after I have been tested? Please assume that you are positive until your test comes back negative. Currently, we are seeing results in 1-3 days. Our goal, is to get fast results for those who need clearance to return to school.
