The Child Life specialists at Children's Mercy help children cope with the feelings they may have about their illness, injury, disability, or hospitalization. They have created the guide below to help your child understand how a COVID-19 nasal swab test works.
If you have medical questions about your child and COVID-19, please call your primary care physician first. If you do not have a primary care physician, you can call the CHILDREN'S MERCY COVID-19 HOTLINE at (816) 302-8800.
If you have questions on how to prepare your child for a COVID-19 nasal swab test, please call the Child Life Education Line at (816) 983-6870 or message “child life messages” on the MyChildrensMercy patient portal.
