What do I do if my child develops symptoms?

Your child needs to stay at home. Try to isolate them from other individuals in the home and if over 2 years old, they should wear a mask along with others in the home. 

Call the doctor’s office and request a COVID-19 test. Depending on their symptoms and the severity they may also recommend you be evaluated at that time or after the COVID-19 test has resulted. 

Notify the child’s school that they are sick and the COVID-19 result if it has been obtained.

Supportive care including tylenol for fever and pain, hydration with electrolyte enriched fluids, warm teas, and honey (for children over 1) can be helpful for cough and other cold symptoms.

If you or another adult in your home are sick, you should contact your healthcare provider or call 2-1-1 for information and to make an appt for a FREE testing site in San Diego County. https://211sandiego.org/covid19/covid-19-testing/
