8/20/21: Arvada Pediatrics supports the recent recommendatons made by the CDC, AAP, and CDPHE regarding the importance of returning to in-person learning while keeping our kids as safe as possible, which includes wearing masks in most indoor settings for those over the age of 2 years to help prevent spread of COVID-19. Please note that true medical exemptions to wearing a mask are quite rare; for example, having significant physical or developmental issues that make it impossible to remove a face covering by themselves. Please see the links below for further information and discussion from our colleagues at Children's Hospital Colorado and the American Academy of Pediatrics:
Rapid antigen testing for COVID-19 is now available at Arvada Pediatrics for our patients, in addition to send-out PCR testing. One or both tests may be recommended depending on symptoms. Please schedule an appointment with one of our providers to discuss your best screening option. (Visit copays may apply per your insurance plan. Please be sure to check your benefits and out-of-pocket costs prior to scheduling).
