If you believe you have been exposed to COVID-19, first, do not panic.
COVID symptoms can usually be managed at home with medications. Acetaminophen or ibuprofen can help with fever and pain. Encourage your child to drink plenty of fluids. It is okay if they do not have an appetite.
If at least one person in the family tests positive for COVID, and others in the home are sick as well, you should assume everyone has COVID and should stay at home for 10 days from the start of symptoms.
