    Abstract

    The novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection in newborns is extremely rare, and there is a scarcity of research pertaining to epidemiology, clinical presentation, transmission, and prognosis in this population. We present five newborns who tested positive while colocating with their SARS-CoV-2 positive mothers from March 19 to May 15, 2020, at a large public hospital in Queens, New York that was severely affected by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. All the newborns subsequently tested negative and remained asymptomatic, including through median outpatient follow-up of three weeks.
