From our current experience with COVID-19 infections in the pediatric population thus far, we know that symptoms of COVID-19 infection can be very mild and overlap with many of the symptoms of common childhood illnesses. While your child's symptoms could be due a common cold virus, we have had patients who had just a runny nose, or even just sl fussiness who have been positive for COVID-19. So please DO NOT think of your child's symptoms as "just a cold". If your child has symptoms, please stay at home. Please contact us to arrange possible testing for COVID-19. Daycares and preschools should NOT be letting children back to care who have had symptoms without a negative COVID-19 test and 24 hours without symptoms without medications. If a symptomatic child has symptoms but did not have a COVID-19 test, they should remain out of grouped care/school for 10 days.
