The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has announced that Enterovirus (EV-D68) infections have recently been documented across the United States. Almost all of the 472 reported cases have been children. There have been no cases reported in Hawai'i, but with Autumn Break approaching, and possible travel plans being made, we thought you should be aware of this information found on the CDC website, cdc.gov.
Enteroviruses commonly circulate in summer and fall. We’re currently in middle of the enterovirus season, and EV-D68 infections are likely to decline later in the fall.
EV-D68 can cause mild to severe respiratory illness.
- Mild symptoms may include fever, runny nose, sneezing, cough, and body and muscle aches.
- Severe symptoms may include wheezing and difficulty breathing.
Since EV-D68 causes respiratory illness, the virus can be found in an infected person’s respiratory secretions, such as saliva, nasal mucus, or sputum. EV-D68 likely spreads from person to person when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or touches contaminated surfaces.
How can the virus be avoided?
- Washing your hands often with soap and water, especially after using the toilet and changing diapers,
- Avoiding close contact, such as touching and shaking hands, with people who are sick, and
- Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces.
Parents are encouraged to sign-up for conferences with any of their childʻs teachers. Please visit this link to download a sign-up form, or stop by the Office. Mahalo!
