Experts worldwide are still learning details about COVID-19. Luckily, there are far fewer cases of the virus reported in children and the virus seems to cause a milder infection in children than in adults. But more recently there have been cases of kids developing more serious symptoms, sometimes with a delay of several weeks after being unknowingly infected.

Numerous tips have been published by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to keep your family safe. We are all familiar with the tips to practice good hand hygiene, social distance, stock up on essentials, and keep baby’s gear like baby's bottles, plastic toys, bedding and clothes clean.
