  2. Describe the timing of testing, isolation, and quarantine in pediatric patients with respect to COVID-19.
  3. Identify how COVID-19 differs between children and adults.
  4. Discuss how COVID-19 impacts special child environments such as schools. 
  5. Discuss the likely COVID-19 vaccines and mechanism of action.
