If your child has any of the main symptoms of COVID-19, even if they’re mild you should :
Get a PCR test (test that is sent to a lab) to check if they have COVID-19 as soon as possible
You, your child and anyone else you live with should stay at home and not have visitors until you get the test result – only leave your home to have the test.
Anyone in your childcare or support bubble should also stay at home if your child has been in close contact with them since their symptoms started or during the 48 hours before they started.
