A Tahoe-area father is asking tourists to stay away after his son became sick with an unusual condition doctors believe may be associated with COVID-19.

Maeson Howard, 10, is “fighting for his life at UC Davis Children’s Hospital,” reports the Tahoe Daily Tribune. Doctors think he may have multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C), a condition the CDC says has been observed in children infected by COVID-19. Children with MIS-C  may experience inflammation of the heart, lungs, brain or gastrointestinal organs, along with fever, vomiting and body pain.
