COVID-19 Testing and Quarantine Guidelines

Pediatric Associates of the Northwest Covid Testing

As the supply of Covid tests have improved and the demand for testing has started to decrease, PANW has once again re-opened patient testing for travel, leisure, and return to sports. We continue to offer testing for patients with symptoms and/or exposure, and return to school. Virtual visits prior to testing are still required to ensure we are testing within the right timeframe and using the appropriate type of test for the most accurate results. Please call our office to schedule. 


Note: 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. 


For parents who need testing, the Oregon Health Authority’s website is a great resource for locating additional testing (and vaccine) sites in the community.
