COVID-19 Testing for Children

PM Pediatrics, at 11056 Lee Hwy. in the Kamp Washington Shopping Center in Fairfax, is temporarily reserved for children’s COVID-19 testing only and is closed for regular, in-office visits. Anyone who believes their child is showing symptoms of this virus should first get the child evaluated by using the PM Pediatrics Anywhere telemedicine mobile app or by visiting a nearby PM Pediatrics office.

Children must be pre-approved for COVID-19 testing at the Fairfax location. Standard copays apply for an office visit, $0 copay for a PM Pediatrics Anywhere visit. Once approved, bring the child to the Fairfax PM Pediatrics, any day, from 10:30 a.m. to 7:15 p.m., for testing. The testing site is in the parking lot; results will be available in three to five business days. (Phone: 703-552-5437).
