We are excited to continue partnering with our pediatric provider community in offering COVID-19 testing (see our COVID-19 testing page for complete information including how to order a test).

Availability of tests:

Our capacity is highest at our Urgent Care in Seattle. Testing is frequently fully booked at our South Clinic in Federal Way. Our remaining locations usually have some capacity. Appointments can generally be scheduled within 24 to 48 hours.

Testing locations:

    1. Sand Point Learning Center (drive-through)
    2. Urgent Care – Seattle Hospital Campus
    3. Urgent Care – North Clinic in Everett
    4. Urgent Care – Bellevue Clinic and Surgery Center
    5. Urgent Care – South Clinic in Federal Way

Test results:

  • Results will be sent to the ordering/referring provider only (not families).
  • We will no longer send courtesy faxes to providers who did not order the test.
  • If you order a test and it is time sensitive, please go into PHIN to get the result rather than relying on your clinic’s usual system for getting results from Seattle Children’s. Typical turnaround time is 24 to 48 hours, with the vast majority within a day. If you don’t receive results within the time expected, you may call our clinical lab at 206-987-2102 for assistance.
  • Update on the positivity rate: as of September 1, Seattle Children’s has tested 11,331 children with 172 testing positive or undetermined, for a positivity rate of 1.4%.

REMINDER: No walk-up COVID-19 testing.

Referrals are required for COVID-19 testing at all Seattle Children’s testing sites; appointments are also required. After you submit an order, please ask the family to call us at 206-987-2100 to schedule their appointment at one of our five testing locations.

See our COVID-19 testing page for complete information about testing at Seattle Children’s.

Future capacity:

In anticipation of cold and flu season, we are evaluating how best to support the growing need for COVID-19 testing for our pediatric community.  We will keep you updated on any changes made to our testing capacity or processes.
