Managing COVID-19 at home

I am a parent, guardian or carer of a child with COVID-19 – What do I need to know?

Having your child diagnosed with COVID-19 can be stressful for you and your family.

It is important to remember that, so far in Australia, there have not been many hospital admissions for children due to COVID-19 severity. Severe disease is rare.

Children can have similar symptoms to adults. Many children with COVID-19 will have no symptoms, or only mild symptoms similar to a cold.1

If you are worried about your child at any stage, contact your general practice for review as soon as possible. If they are showing severe symptoms, call 000 as per your child’s My COVID-19 action plan.
