If your child tested positive for COVID 19 and participates in sports
Anyone who had a positive COVID-19 test should get their doctor’s approval before returning to exercise or sports. They need a minimum 10-day period to rest, without exercise or competition.
Before returning to physical activity, children should be screened for heart symptoms like chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, irregular heartbeat , or fainting . A child with a positive heart screening will need an EKG and referral to a pediatric cardiologist for possible additional cardiac tests.
Once cleared, the child can start a g radual return to physical activity. The doctor will recommend a schedule b ased on the child's age and h ow severe th eir COVID-19 sympt oms were.
Children who were very sick from COVID-19 or diagnosed with MIS-C must be treated as though they have an inflamed heart muscle ( myocarditis ). They should not exercise or compete for 3 to 6 months. A pediatric cardiologist should examine these children before they are allowed to return to exercise or competition.
