Coronavirus and PKD

What symptoms should I watch out for in my child?

In general, you should call your child’s doctor for the same reasons you would normally. Bringing your child to an ER or urgent care to get tested or for minor symptoms is currently not recommended since many sites are not offering testing and there is a risk of exposure to COVID-19 and other serious infections. Consider calling your child’s doctor and ask about getting your child tested if they have:

  • Respiratory symptoms beyond a mild cough: difficulty breathing, rapid or deep breathing, or a severe cough
  • Shortness of breath from continued coughing
  • Refusing liquids with decreased urine frequency
  • Crying without ability to be consoled
  • Fever that is not responsive to fever reducing medications
  • Behavior that is not normal for your child
