What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19

 For most people, especially children, COVID-19 will be a mild illness.

 The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are recent onset of:

  • new continuous cough and/or
  • high temperature and/or
  • a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

If your child develops any of these symptoms of COVID-19, they should remain at home and arrangements should be made for them to be tested. This should be a test taken at an NHS site (a PCR test) and NOT a rapid test taken at a community testing site (an LFT test).  At that time all other household members must also stay at home, not go to work, school or public areas, even for exercise.

 Testing can be arranged by calling 119 or online:

 When the result of the child’s test is known further advice will be available.                                                                                                                                    

How to stop COVID-19 spreading

There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19:

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
