Mental Health Awareness: I am not My Mental Illness
THERE IS SOMEONE AT HOME WITH COVID-19. WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I AM WORRIED ABOUT MY CHILD’S HEALTH?
If children get infected with the virus, they usually have a much milder form of
COVID-19 than adults. Some children may become very sick with COVID-19, especially if
they have other health problems, like malnutrition, TB, HIV, asthma and other chest
problems or long-term illnesses.
Disposable medical grade masks should be kept for healthcare workers who are in close
contact with COVID-19 patients. Other people should wear cloth masks.
If your child gets sick, it may be from COVID-19 or from other health problems.
