Children are most at risk, which is why school is out.
Children are probably at slightly less risk to have ill effects unless they have an underlying condition like asthma.
STAY CALM, children are least likely to contract Coronavirus (COVID-19) or be hospitalized with complications due to this virus.
However, they can be most likely to spread it to vulnerable adults because they are less likely to show symptoms and not wash their hands properly.
We are so blessed to serve as the medical home for the families and children of this community! Singing River is experienced at taking care of pediatric patients. We recognize patterns of illness and are experts in their prognosis. I have the utmost faith in this team.
Thank you all so much for your continued support and commitment to the Exceptional Pediatric Experience. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our pediatric clinics.Tyler Sexton, MD – Chair and Medical Director of Singing River Pediatrics
