A: No. The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar in children and adults. However, children with confirmed COVID-19 have generally presented with mild symptoms. Reported symptoms in children include cold-like symptoms, such as fever, runny nose, and cough. Vomiting and diarrhea have also been reported. It’s not known yet whether some children may be at higher risk for severe illness, for example, children with underlying medical conditions and special healthcare needs. There is much more to be learned about how the disease impacts children.

A big Thank you to the coaches and staff at Ella Barnes Elementary! I had a great time with your kiddos. Today we had 225 students in attendance. Your students were amazing and very respectful. We introduced our new video out called “Wonderland of Fantasy”to the 4th and 5th graders. This video teaches students about the brain and mental health. The students also talked about mental health and depression and peer pressure. They asked many questions and we also discussed bullying. We talked about the 4 parts of the brain that help with the mental health and how healthy foods can help with depression. Did you know that the Cerebrum is the largest part of the brain and its capacity is 85% of the brain. We did some brain exercises and the kids were challenged on some of these exercises. The students also had their favorite veggies and fruits that we talked about which is carrots, cucumbers, cilantro, lettuce, jalapenos, and cabbage which are very healthy for these kiddos.
