What should I do if my child becomes unwell?
Babies (less than 1 month old) with fever (≥38°C) should be referred to the Children's Emergency (CE) for clinical assessment and considered for admission to conduct inpatient investigations / management.
Persons with mild ARI symptoms should stay at home until symptoms resolve.
If you test positive with an ART test, you should regard yourself as being infected with COVID-19.
Avoid close contact with others while still symptomatic. You may return to normal activities when your symptoms resolve.
If you have a need to go out while symptomatic, please exercise social responsibility to avoid infecting others – wear a mask, minimise your social interactions and avoid crowded places, do not visit vulnerable settings such as hospitals and nursing homes, and avoid contact with vulnerable persons, such as the elderly.
If you are unable to avoid contact with vulnerable persons despite being symptomatic (e.g., due to essential work or caregiving responsibilities), do take additional necessary precautions (e.g., wearing a mask, practice good hand hygiene) when interacting with them, until you test negative.
