While her symptoms are not necessarily suggesting COVID, depending on local activity and regulations COVID may need to be ruled out. Her local pediatrician would be best to coordinate.

Most likely not. The barrage of news on COVID tends to obscure the resurgence of other, ordinary viral illnesses that have returned with the return of children to school and play spaces. Check in with your pediatrician or health center - especially if she starts having fever 101 or higher.
