Does Curative test children?
Curative has not formally studied the accuracy of the test in children. If your healthcare practitioner prescribes this test for someone less than 18 years old our Laboratory Director recommends that any child who cannot make a productive cough on demand have the nasal swab done instead. Parents should assist children in doing this. Please note that the testing will be observed by a trained healthcare worker. Testing of asymptomatic children is not authorized.
