    Generally, COVID-19 symptoms are milder in children than in adults, and some infected children may not have any signs of being sick at all.

    Symptoms for children and adults include:

    Cough
    Fever or chills
    Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    Muscle or body aches
    Sore throat
    New loss of taste or smell
    Diarrhea
    Headache
    New fatigue
    Nausea or vomiting
    Congestion or runny nose

    Fever and cough are common COVID-19 symptoms in both adults and children; shortness of breath is more likely to be seen in adults. Children can have pneumonia, with or without obvious symptoms. They can also experience sore throat, excessive fatigue or diarrhea.

    However, serious illness in children with COVID-19 is possible, and parents should stay alert if their child is diagnosed with, or shows signs of, the disease.
