COVID-19 update: testing
We at Adirondack Pediatrics are currently using guidance from the CDC and New York State Department of Health, along with local health departments, to help prevent the spread of the novel Coronavirus infection. We do not currently have the necessary equipment to test for Coronavirus at our office.
If your child is sick with cough, congestion, and fever, please call our office. We will evaluate the risk of COVID-19 infection, and with the local health department, determine whether testing is recommended. If testing is recommended, the department of health will arrange where and when testing will take place.
We will continue to update you as this situation develops.
