When Should I Get My Kid Tested for COVID-19?

In today’s MomDocs video, Kendra Whittle talks to Dr. Kristen Bruno about when you should get your child tested for COVID-19 and why. Testing is especially important if your child is coughing, has a fever, or is showing any other symptoms of COVID-19. The cold & flu can both look very similar to COVID-19. However, the associated risks are very different, so it’s crucial to know what’s causing your child’s symptoms right now. If your child has been exposed to COVID-19 but is NOT currently exhibiting symptoms, watch the video to find out why it may be better to wait a few days before testing.
