Children presenting with Covid -19 symptoms should stay at home, isolate and arrange a test. If people have difficulties booking a test, they should keep trying while isolating, as slots are added during the day. Tests can be booked online or by calling 119 if you don’t have access to the internet. National advice for parents on what to do if their child has symptoms is available here.
