Respiratory Virus Circulating in U.S.

A virus is circulating that is causing respiratory illness in children throughout the U.S. Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) symptoms may include cold-like symptoms, fever, rash, vomiting and diarrhea. There is no vaccine for EV-D68, the best prevention is to cover your cough, wash your hands frequently, avoid hand contact with eyes, nose and mouth, and stay home when you are sick.
