Recently, a number of children have developed significant systematic inflammatory response that has appeared during the COVID-19 Pandemic. This may have been compared to other rare childhood conditions such as Kawasaki disease or Toxic Shock Syndrome, but at this time, it’s considered a separate condition.

It’s important for parents to be aware of these symptoms. If you have any additional questions or concerns, contact the Howard County Health Department at (410) 313-6284.
