Symptoms of COVID-19

Symptoms for COVID-19 consist of fever, runny nose, cough, congestion, diarrhea, fatigue, and more. If your child is experiencing any of these symptoms or has had a known COVID-19 exposure, please call our office to schedule an appointment on the sick side of our building. All patients who have family members experiencing these symptoms or are experiencing any symptom themselves, even mildly, will be seen for their visit on the sick side of the building to limit potential exposure to Hendersonville Pediatrics’ staff and other patients.

Available Testing

Hendersonville Pediatrics does offer rapid COVID tests to symptomatic patients only. A send-out test to a reference lab is also available to asymptomatic patients who have had a known COVID-19 exposure. Due to limited availability, we will not test a patient to prove a negative for any reason other than for pre-surgical clearance. Please call our office for an appointment or to know the best time frame to be tested for COVID-19.

If Positive for COVID-19 or Known Direct Exposure

If you have any questions concerning quarantine times, whether or not you should be tested for COVID-19, or other general questions, please call the North Carolina COVID-19 Hotline at 888-892-1162.
