Keeping your children healthy is our number one goal at Kids First Pediatrics. We are actively monitoring the spread of COVID-19 and are working with local public health officials and the CDC to ensure that we keep your family healthy.
According to the CDC, the people at most risk are older adults and those with serious chronic medical problems like Diabetes, Heart Disease, Lung problems, and those with suppressed immune systems.
Research has shown that healthy children do NOT appear to be at high risk for complications from COVID-19. In fact, if a healthy child or adult contracts the illness, the symptoms are often very mild. The concerns that health officials have is that children and healthy adults can still spread the disease to high risk individuals even if they themselves have very mild symptoms.
Please remember that it is still cold and flu season and there are many viruses that can cause cough and fever. If you have specific questions about your child, please call our office at 919-250-3478 to speak to a member of our team, or send send us a message through patient portal, or the Healow Kids app.
