COVID 19 : Most children handle COVID 19 well. If symptomatic, then symptomatic relief is usually all that is required. Rest, hydration, acetaminophen, & nasal saline irrigation may help mild symptoms. Get emergency care for difficulty breathing, blue lips or face, significant & persistent chest pain or new-onset of confusion.
