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.
What happens when you come for a COVID-19 test?
You will be going to Children's Mercy for something called a COVID-19 nasal swab or test. This will help the doctors and nurses know if your body has a certain type of germ.
The nurses doing the test will wear special outfits and ask your family questions.
