If a parent or sibling has symptoms of COVID-19 or tested positive for COVID-19, household contacts should monitor for symptoms. They do not need to stay home.
Everyone should be paying attention to how they feel. If a child has a mild illness, they should stay away from school or child care settings until they are well enough to return to regular activities.
If their symptoms persist or worsen, contact their care provider. Call 9-1-1 or go to the hospital if their symptoms become severe.
