Guidance Note for Parents of Children who are Self-Isolating
Children can get coronavirus (COVID-19), but they seem to get it less often than adults and it is usually less serious.
Symptoms of Coronavirus in Children
The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
- Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get the test result – only leave your home to have a test.
Get advice from NHS 111 if you're worried about your child or not sure what to do.
- For children aged 5 or over – use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service.
- For children under 5 – call 111.
