If your child has COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough or shortness of breath), confirmed exposure or both, you can seek guidance from a pediatric provider 24/7 through Children’s Online Urgent Care.
While some of our Urgent Care locations are closed until further notice, our Mequon, Mayfair, New Berlin and Kenosha clinics are open with regular hours. As always, our Online Urgent Care video visits are available 24/7.
For most kids, the symptoms of COVID-19 are mild and the provider will likely recommend they stay home, limit their contact with others (especially at-risk populations such as the sick or elderly) and treat the symptoms with over-the-counter medication. The provider will determine if additional steps, including a COVID-19 test, are needed.
Please do not come to a Children's Wisconsin location without calling first.
