Parent Advice

Reviewed 24 February 2021

While coronavirus is infectious to children it is rarely serious. If your child is unwell it is likely to be a non Covid-19 illness, rather than Covid-19 itself. Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice to stay at home during this period, it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured. Remember that NHS 111, GPs and hospitals are still providing the same safe care that they have always done.
