Night Lite Pediatrics is able to provide curbside testing for young patients who have any of the symptoms associated with the coronavirus (COVID-19). Because we’re an urgent care clinic, we can provide this testing immediately with same-day results. If your child is exhibiting any of the symptoms associated with the virus, you can come see us today for rapid COVID-19 testing for pediatric patients near Lake Mary, FL.
Should I get my child tested for the coronavirus?
You might suspect your child has been exposed to the virus. If your child is symptomatic, or even if your child isn’t, you can bring them into our clinic for evaluation and/or testing. At Night Lite Pediatrics, we can see young patients of any age, including newborns and up to adults age 21.
Should I get my child tested even if they don’t have any symptoms?
If, for whatever reason, you suspect your child may have been exposed to the virus, you can speak with us or come see us so we can help you decide whether to proceed with testing.
What is the current test for the coronavirus?
There are currently two different tests for the virus. One test is the COVID-19 molecular test, also known as the RT-PCR test. This nasal swab test is especially accurate and offers results within several days. The other test is also a nasal swab test. It’s called the rapid COVID-19 antigen test and it’s almost as accurate as the molecular test, but can provide results within only a couple hours.
Are the tests for the coronavirus accurate?
Yes, they’re very accurate. The COVID-19 molecular test is the most reliable test, so it’s the most common one. However, the rapid COVID-19 antigen test has a 96% rate of correlation with the molecular test, so it’s very accurate too, and it’s also much quicker.
How long does it take to get the results of a coronavirus test?
With the COVID-19 molecular test, test results are available in 7 to 10 days, and with the rapid COVID-19 antigen test, test results are available in 1 to 2 hours.
Without insurance, how much is the COVID-19 test?
Thanks to the government’s CARES Act, patients who are fully uninsured can still be tested for the virus, and their tests will be covered. When such patients come see us here at Night Lite Pediatrics, they must bring a valid photo ID and sign an affidavit stating they don’t have any insurance.
With insurance, how much is the COVID-19 test?
All health insurances should cover the costs of testing for patients suspected to have the virus, under observation, or possibly exposed to the virus. Please understand that with screening through private insurance, some services are subject to copays, coinsurances, or deductibles.
Can I bring my child in to see you for a COVID-19 test only?
Yes, you can, and a referral is not necessary in order for you to do so.
Do I need to make an appointment for my child to be tested?
No, you don’t. An appointment isn’t necessary with us at Night Lite Pediatrics, so you can bring in your child for a test and we’ll provide it right away at our clinic’s curbside.
Does your clinic provide testing at all of its locations?
Yes, all of our clinic locations are offering testing, so you can come to the location nearest you. Please see our Locations page for the location nearest you and for its address, hours of operation, and contact information.
What safety precautions is your clinic taking?
At all our clinic locations, we’re taking the following precautions:
- Preregistering parents with our clinic online to minimize the time they have to spend in our clinic (please call us to preregister)
- Allowing only one parent to accompany their child, which can help to minimize potential exposure
- Asking parents and their children over 2 years old to wear a face mask upon visiting our clinic; if necessary, we can provide a mask
- If your child is over 2 and having any upper respiratory issues or trouble breathing, please let us know upon arrival
- Encouraging our patients to wait in their vehicle instead of inside our clinic, which can limit the time our patients have to spend inside our facilities
- Wearing personal protective equipment for our evaluations and tests
- Sanitizing our exam rooms and equipment for our patients
What should I expect upon arrival at your clinic?
The tests we provide are simple nasal swabs. If we need to provide your child with a test, we’ll do so at our clinic’s curbside in order to protect you, your child, our other patients, and our staff from potential viral exposure. Please understand that tests are limited in supply, provided on a first-come-first-serve basis, and may have wait times of up to three hours. Thank you!
