Does Mount Pleasant Pediatrics offer COVID testing?
Yes, we have a Rapid Antigen Test and a COVID PCR Test available. For the most accurate results, we are limiting testing to persons who have had COVID-19 symptoms for at least 72 hours. Testing is not recommended for asymptomatic patients due to the high rate of false negative results. For further questions please contact your doctor’s nurse.
