Coronavirus COVID_19

Covid 19 – What happens if my child shows Covid 19 symptoms?

Children can get coronavirus (COVID-19), but they seem to get it less often than adults and it's usually less serious.

 

The main symptoms of COVID-19 are:

 

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • a loss or change to sense of smell or taste – this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

 

If your child has any of the main symptoms of COVID-19, even if they're mild:

  1. Get a PCR test (test that is sent to a lab) to check if they have COVID-19 as soon as possible.
  2. Your child should stay at home and not have visitors (self-isolate) until you get the test result – they can only leave home to have the test. Check if you and anyone else your child lives with need to self-isolate.

 

Get a PCR test to check for COVID-19 on GOV.UK
