If you believe that your child is having symptoms of COVID-19, please consider the following guidelines:
Most cases of COVID-19 are mild with symptoms of fever and cough. If your child has symptoms that you’re able to manage at home, the best guidance is to stay home, get plenty of rest, drink fluids, and take pain and fever medications like acetaminophen.
If your child has symptoms of a respiratory illness including fever and cough, they should stay home for at least 10 days, and for 3 days with no fever and improvement of respiratory symptoms–which ever is longer. No testing is recommended for these symptoms.
If your child’s symptoms worsen, has a fever longer than 5 days, or difficulty breathing, please contact our office for advice.
We hope to be your trusted partner in caring for your family as we navigate these uncertain times.
