What to do if your child develops symptoms

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).

 

Testing can be arranged by calling 119 or online: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test

 

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