Children do experience the same symptoms as adults do with COVID-19. However, at this time, we are seeing that children’s symptoms seem to be milder. Children with chronic diseases such as heart, lung, kidney disease, or diabetes, or are immunocompromised, are at higher risk for complications due to COVID-19.

Walking by or passing by a known COVID-19 case.
As much as possible, you should stay in a specific room and away from the infected people in your home. If you’ve been in contact with someone who has the virus, you could experience symptoms within 2 to 14 days. Notify your healthcare provider right away if you develop COVID-19 symptoms (i.e., fever, cough, or shortness of breath).
If you are someone who is more vulnerable to COVID-19 and is older than 50 years old or have a chronic disease such as heart, lung, kidney disease, or diabetes, or are immunocompromised, then you should be extra-cautious about social distancing and being around people in general.
