Testing for COVID-19 in children

Parents have questions. We have answers.

COVID-19 testing at Children's Hospital:
COVID-19 Testing Appointments are available across LCMC Health's various locations and can be scheduled by calling the LCMC Health Nurse Hotline at 504.386.3125.

Due to the current, significant internal demand for COVID-19 testing at the hospital, Children’s Hospital’s Uptown Drive-Thru Site is not currently accepting new appointments. We will provide an update at the earliest opportunity when our testing resources at Children’s Hospital New Orleans’ Uptown Drive-Thru site can open back up to the community.
