In the adult population, COVID-19 infections appear to affect the heart at a higher rate than other viruses, while in the pediatric population, the virus can cause multi-system inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C) involving the heart. Due to the lack of evidence for cardiac injury from COVID-19 infections in the pediatric population and the low number of pediatric cases, recommendations are made from expert opinion from the sports medicine, infectious disease, and cardiology departments and are subject to change.
