Difficult to say: How old is your daughter? Before you took her to Woolies (past several days), has she had any contacts with persons with COVID-19? Any additional symptoms? such fatigue, muscle ache, difficulty in breathing, cannot smell, or taste? If she has any of these symptoms, the likelihood of COVID becomes large. If any doubt, please have her tested for COVID.
