Caring for COVID Positive Kids
Although it can be a very worrying time, COVID-19 in children tends to be mild or the children have no symptoms, with most being able to be managed at home. Some children who have pre-existing medical conditions are at a higher risk of developing more serious symptoms of COVID-19.
The Child and Adolescent Health Service (CAHS) has put together some information for parents and carers, covering topics from testing to managing symptoms, to talking about COVID.
Please go to Child and Adolescent Health Service - COVID-19 in children to view the available resources.
For additional information on how to care for your child at home, please see the Healthy WA website COVID-19 positive children
Children who are high risk or have complex conditions can register for WA COVID Care at Home and may be referred to the specialised paediatric service. Please see WA COVID Care at Home.
