Children and young people who have symptoms of a respiratory infection, including Covid-19

Respiratory infections are common in children and young people, especially during winter months. For most these illnesses will not be serious, and they will soon recover following rest and plenty of fluids.

Symptoms and response

If you have symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as COVID-19, and you have a high temperature or you do not feel well enough to go to work or carry out normal activities, you are advised to try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people.

Children with mild symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat, or slight cough, who are otherwise well, can continue to attend school.

Children who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with others where they can. They can return to school and resume normal activities when they no longer have a high temperature and are well enough to attend.
