Kids and Teens Primary Healthcare wanted to address the questions and concerns regarding the COVID-19 outbreak & testing.  Kids and Teens Primary Healthcare, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Emergency departments, Urgent Care Centers, and ambulatory clinics ARE NOT collection sites for COVID-19 testing.

We are adhering to a mitigation strategy to keep our community healthy and request that children and families who do not need medical care remain at home.

Currently diagnostic testing is only occurring in children who are severely ill with respiratory symptoms and whose care would benefit from results, or for whom our public health partners deem testing is necessary due to symptoms and exposure history.

For further guidance, please contact the Georgia Department of Public Health at (404) 657-2700, Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta,  or go to the CDC website for more information.

Also, please be advised that due to the COVID-19, we are suspending our extended hours on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturday until further notice.  Appointments are still available Monday- Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
