Help Prevent the Spread of Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68)
Most people infected with the enteroviruses have only mild symptoms like the common cold. EV-D68 usually causes mild to severe respiratory illness. Young children and people with asthma are particularly vulnerable. It is important to note that the symptoms can progress quickly. Symptoms to watch for include: difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, rapid breathing, wheezing, lethargy, mild fever, runny nose, sneezing, cough, skin rash, body and muscle aches and mouth blisters.
The following tips can keep your family healthier:
- Wash hands often with soap and water, especially after using the bathroom.
- Avoid kissing, hugging, touching, and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who are sick.
- Disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as toys and doorknobs, especially if someone is sick
- Stay home when feeling sick, and consult with your doctor if your child is experiences symptoms.
