Frequently asked Questions about COVID-19 & Kids

Are children & adolescents at risk for getting COVID-19?
  • Yes. Rates of COVID-19 infection in children and adolescents are comparable to the rates in adults. Initially, the rates of COVID-19 in children and adolescents were under-detected. 
  • They can also transmit COVID-19 infection to others, as evidenced by outbreaks among adolescents attending camps, sports events, and schools, and from children and adolescents to household contacts.
  • Studies of COVID-19 transmission in schools that consistently implemented layered prevention strategies have shown success in limiting transmission in schools. 
How does COVID-19 affect children?
  • Compared with adults, children and adolescents who are infected with COVID-19 are more commonly asymptomatic or have mild, non-specific symptoms (e.g. headache, sore throat).
  • Children are less likely to develop severe illness or die from COVID-19.
