Now that the children are back at school, I am worried about them getting COVID-19. I have heard that COVID-19 is less of a problem for children – is this true?
The NHS says that “Children can get coronavirus (COVID-19), but they seem to get it less often than adults and it’s usually less serious.” However, like any other group in society, they can spread the virus, even if they are not displaying obvious symptoms. Schools should be following the Government’s “Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance for schools and other educational settings” guidelines, which cover safe-distancing and managing the dangers of transmission. If your child exhibits any of the symptoms of COVID-19, please visit here for help and advice.
