My childs daycare provider tested positive for COVID: Advice?

No need to panic. Hell be fine. Feed him veggies n probiotics.

Call his pediatrician asap and get guidance on testing a d everything. Since its a known exposure to someone with symptoms its better to be safe than sorry. If it were my kid i would be pushing for a test. Even if it comes back negative and he doesn’t have it you have the peace of mind knowing that

He needs to be quarantined and tested

If you want get him tested. But sneezing and runny nose are not the symptoms of covid.

We did, and 4 days later our 4yr got very sick, high fever and throwing up, took him on the 5th day to be tested, results came in 3 days later and he was positive.

All 4 of my kids and 29 other people including myself have had COVID-19. Age ranges 5 month old baby to 90 year old. We were all fine. The kids were actually all sick for the shortest amount of time. It was honestly nothing that made us panic, we stay up on zinc and vitamin c at all times.

You need to go get your baby check first.

Have him tested. And speak with his health care provider and good luck mama.:two_hearts:

They have to quarantine 10 days from the day they tested positive. All you can do is have him tested. We are currently in quarantine due to my son testing positive. No symptoms at all.

We just quarantined for 10 days

I would call your pediatrician and have him tested. It should be at least 2 weeks, since he’s had direct contact and symptoms.

I work at a daycare and we’ve had positive cases from children and staff. It never spread thankfully but yeah just monitor him. I personally took my daughter out of daycare and left my job on Tuesday. No longer will work there.

I tested positive in November. I never had my 3 yr old get tested. If it was very uncomfortable for me to get tested, I can’t imagine what it would be like for her. Whether positive or not, not much you can do UNLESS it is really bad and needing hospitalization. If someone is positive they have to quarantine for 10 days, if they are exposed but have not tested positive, it is 14 days since exposure

Your child will need to quarantine for 14 days. You may want to get him tested after 4-5 days of the initial contact with the provider.

I’m in the EXACT same situation right now :weary: Daycare is closed until the 11th. They shut down Thursday. They had a positive staff member and a positive child in the 3 year old group (not my daughters class) the days my daughter was there this week. We were not specifically told to quarantine. My daughter woke up this morning with a runny nose and sneezing. If my daughter is still sick Monday I’ll bring her for a test.

My daughter got exposed at her day care. Thry told me to have her quarantine for 7 to 10 days. She was absolutely fine the whole time. I would call your pediatrician if symptoms seem to get worse.

I wouldn’t test if they’re not showing symptoms. Just take precautions yourself and wear masks. That’s what my daughters dr said after I and my oldest tested positive
