COVID-19 Updates: Latest Information for Parents

Rady Children's Specialists

Urgent Care

En Español

So that we can prioritize patients with serious illness or injury, please do not visit our emergency room or urgent care centers for COVID-19 testing or mild symptoms. For return-to-school tests, check your district’s guidelines, use over-the-counter rapid antigen tests if possible, or visit coronavirus-sd.com for testing locations. 


NOT A COVID-19 TESTING SITE

Rady Children’s Urgent Care DOES NOT offer COVID-19 testing without an urgent care visit with a physician. As part of the urgent care visit, the testing is NOT rapid testing —  the results take one to three days.


Our Chula Vista, Escondido, La Mesa, and Murrieta urgent care locations are temporarily closed at this time to conserve resources.

Two of our urgent cares are open for in-person visits (Mid-City and Oceanside). These locations now close at 9 p.m.

Overview

We realize that many urgent health care needs can occur after hours, when your child’s primary care provider may not be available. That’s why Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego offers pediatric urgent care services in your neighborhood.

Our physicians see patients every day at our Urgent Care centers in Mid-City (San Diego), Chula Vista, and Oceanside.

The Mid-City location offers a Behavioral Health Urgent Care.

Scroll down past the locations listing below to read when to go to Urgent Care and when to contact your child’s primary care provider.
