Seeking medical care: What to do if you think your child has COVID-19
If your child has a mild illness, we recommend staying at home. Consider using treatments that you would use for the common cold, including fever reducers (ibuprofen and acetaminophen), humidified air, and cough suppressants for age-appropriate children.
Children with mild illness do not need to see a medical provider. If you have questions about whether your child needs to see a medical provider, please call your primary care physician or call our COVID-19 Hotline at (816) 302-8800.
