When to Test Your Child for COVID-19

When to Test Your Child
for COVID-19

Possible infection or exposure: Find out if your child has contracted COVID-19 if they have symptoms or have come in contact with someone who was infected.

School activities: Sports and after-school programs may require a negative PCR test for attendance.

School or daycare: Many schools and childcare programs require a PCR test for enrollment or attendance after travel or possible exposure.

Travel: Safely travel by testing before and after your trip. Some destinations require a negative PCR test for entry. Check with your destination before you go.
