COVID-19 Advise for Parents
If your child has COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough or shortness of breath), confirmed exposure or both.
PLEASE CALL YOUR CHILD’S PERSONAL DOCTOR!!
Your child’s doctor knows them and their medical history best and they will determine if additional steps, including a COVID-19 test, are needed.
For most kids, the symptoms of COVID-19 are mild and your child’s doctor will likely recommend they stay home, limit their contact with others (especially at-risk populations such as the sick or elderly) and treat the symptoms with over-the-counter medication.
I have been frequently asked, how do I know if my infant/child is experiencing shortness of breathe
If your child cannot seem to get enough breath in his lungs (shortness of breath) or is having a hard time breathing, he probably has a medical condition that needs treatment.
Please note: Children’s Wisconsin is not a public testing location for COVID-19.
