COVID Testing for Children FAQs
From the CDC website:
Information about COVID-19 in children is still evolving. The current information suggests that children with confirmed COVID-19 generally had mild symptoms.
However, a small percentage of children have been reported to have more severe illness. Children with serious chronic medical conditions are believed to be at higher risk.
Anyone at an early phase of infection or that is infected but does not have symptoms can play a role in the spread of COVID-19.
Despite lower risk of serious illness among most children, children with COVID-19-like symptoms should avoid contact with others who might be at higher risk, such as older adults and adults with serious chronic medical conditions.
If you were tested at our facility, you can contact us with questions about your symptoms and infection.
We encourage you to follow up with your pediatrician. If your pediatrician is unavailable, you can contact our facility or a facility of your choice.
Symptoms to be concerned about include:
– difficulty breathing
– inability to wake up
If you experience any of these symptoms, please seek care immediately at our facility or a facility of your choice.
