We understand that many parents are likely to be feeling anxious or concerned about their children’s health and
wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Parents should be reassured that the evidence so far is babies and
children under five almost never get seriously ill from COVID-19. The Department of Health and Human Services has produced a guide covering Victorian Maternal and Child Health Services(PDF, 1MB). (PDF download)
