Thanks to JP for sending from Children’s National Hospital:

“Children’s National Hospital has opened a drive-up/walk-up location where primary care doctors in the Washington, D.C., region can refer young patients for COVID-19 specimen collection and testing.

Primary care doctors can refer children through young adults up to age 22 for COVID-19 specimen collection/testing. This is the first such drive-up site to open in Washington, D.C.

The site location was donated by Trinity Washington University and can safely test children and young adults through age 22 who have been identified by their pediatrician or other primary care doctor with symptoms of COVID-19.

For a child to be tested at this location, the parent or guardian must show a paper copy or electronic copy of the physician referral form completed by their primary care provider.

All results are communicated back to the family by the referring doctor when they are returned in approximately three to five days.

Families can get more information about how to get a physician referral here.”

Regarding other testing – from the Mayor’s Office:

“Mayor Muriel Bowser and the District Department of Health (DC Health) published information for residents on getting tested for the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the District, including new locations for drive-thru and walk-up testing by hospitals and health providers. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

My friends and I are wondering how we should get to a medical facility if we suspect we have COVID-19? As most young professionals in the city we rely on public transit and rideshares to get places regularly, which we would not use if we suspect we are sick.

Has the city issued any recommendations? What do other readers recommend? Do we call an ambulance or just stay home?”

Another reader asks: “If a person has bad symptoms, needs to tested (or SAVED), how do they get there? Uber? WMATA? Walk w/ 104° fever?”
