Children can get COVID-19, however we do know that they often get milder forms of the illness. Most children will experience nothing more than a mild viral illness. The best way to prevent the spread of this virus is to wear a face covering (over the age of two years), stay six feet apart from others, and wash hands frequently. Please refer to the resources below, and call the office if you have any concerns or believe your child may have been exposed to COVID-19.
