Avoid contact: Children may become quite ill from COVID 19 infection, although most children have mild illness. Avoid contact, use COVID precautions. Drink fluids, rest, monitor temperature and please have a screening test. Take Tylenol rather than Motrin for fever. Use nasal saline as directed for congestion. Loss of smell and taste is one feature of COVID 19.
