Will my child need tests?
If a doctor or nurse suspects your child has Covid 19, they might take a swab from inside their nose for testing. These tests can help the doctor figure out if your child has Covid 19 or another illness.
In some areas, it might not be possible to test everyone who might have been exposed to the virus. If the doctor can’t test your child, they might tell you to keep them home and away from other people, and call if symptoms get worse.
