, explains the doctor and journalist Damien Mascret.
So what if a child is positive in the family home? “In any case, you have to consider that for seven days, it risks infecting you. This means that the child must stay in his room as much as possible, and when he comes out put on a mask. (…) It is of course necessary to ventilate the room as much as possible. Finally, the child can go out anyway to play outside, as long as he respects the barrier gestures “, indicates Damien Mascret.
