Norton Children’s Infectious Diseases, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, offers a COVID-19 Follow-up Clinic for children and teens experiencing effects after a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.
If your child is experiencing severe COVID-19 symptoms or multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) associated with COVID-19, go directly to the Norton Children’s Hospital emergency department.
