COVID-19 Testing and Quarantine Guidelines

Pediatric Associates of the Northwest Covid Testing

The rapid spread of the Omicron variant, along with many social gatherings over the holidays have led to a dramatic increase in requests for Covid-19 testing. This has also led to a limited availability of testing supplies locally and across the country. 

At this time, PANW is offering COVID-19 testing for patients with a medical necessity and school purposes only. We are unable to offer testing for social/recreational purposes or testing for parents until supply levels improve. Additionally, patients who have a positive home antigen test do NOT need a PCR test in the office to confirm their results. Positive antigen test results are reliable and can be trusted. 

 

The Oregon Health Authority’s website is a great resource for locating additional testing (and vaccine) sites in the community. We appreciate your understanding and will update our testing guidelines when we are able to expand our testing services once again.
