Update: The Enterovirus-D68 Strain and How You Can Protect Yourself and Your Family from Infection (pdf)
Enteroviruses (EV) are common viruses; however, the EV strain identified as EV-D68 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is causing severe illness in children in several states. The New Jersey Department of Health has laboratory-confirmed cases of the EV-D68 throughout the state. For an updated list of affected counties with confirmed EV-D68 cases visit www.nj.gov/health. There is no vaccine and hand sanitizers are not effective in killing the EV-D68. Most people infected with EV have no symptoms or only mild symptoms, like a runny nose, sneezing, cough, body and muscle aches and sometimes fever, but some infections can be serious. Read the NJ Dept. of Heath bulletin to learn more about the EV-D68 virus and how you can protect yourself and your family from being infected.
