COVID-19 swabbing

COVID-19 swabbing is a new CPG that has been reviewed by the CPG Committee. It will be considered for PIC endorsement on 27 August.


Key Points

  1. Testing for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) involves an oropharyngeal and deep nasal swab
  2. Discomfort/distress may be experienced due to this procedure and preparation may minimise the impact for the child and their family
  3. Droplet and contact precautions should be maintained whilst performing the swab; the person performing the swab should use appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE)
