Covid-19 is a new viral disease. Scientists are still learning about how it spreads, how it impacts children, and what role children may play in the spread of the disease.  People with COVID-19 have a wide variety of symptoms, ranging from mild to severe.  Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after an exposure.  These symptoms may include:

  • fever* or feeling feverish/chills
  • cough
  • shortness of breath
  • fatigue (tiredness)
  • muscle or body aches
  • headaches
  • new loss of taste or smell
  • sore throat
  • runny or stuffy nose

*It’s important to note that most children with COVID may not have a fever.
