To keep all of us safe, but especially to protect our most vulnerable patients, Akron Children’s will continue to rely on the proven safety protocols that slow the spread of COVID-19. These include screening all patients and visitors upon entering our facilities, requiring face masks for everyone over age 2 and medically able, promoting social distancing and hand washing, and encouraging those who are eligible to get the vaccine.

Thank you for helping to keep our patients safe.

Drive-thru Testing

COVID-19 Drive through testing

The COVID-19 drive-thru testing clinics are for children up to age 18 (unless you are an Akron Children’s patient up to age 26 transitioning to adult care). You do not need to be an established Akron Children’s patient to be tested. A MyChart account is recommended to receive results as quickly as possible. Otherwise, parents will receive a phone call with test results. More information about MyChart can be found at

We ask that you schedule an appointment for testing prior to arrival. Schedule an appointment here.
