Attention Public Notice
Important information about Enterovirus

October 3, 2014

 

RE:  Enterovirus D68

Parents/Guardians/Staff of Elysian Fields ISD:

You may or may not be aware of Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) that has been on the news in recent weeks.  I feel it is important to make certain that you are aware of what it is and how to recognize it.  It is a virus that can cause mild to severe respiratory illness.  In general, infants, children, and teenagers are most likely to get infected and ill from EV-D68.  Children with asthma may have a higher risk for severe respiratory illness caused by this virus. 

Mild symptoms may include: 

  • fever, runny nose, sneezing, cough, and body and muscle aches

    Severe symptoms may include:

  • wheezing and difficulty breathing

    The virus spreads from person to person when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or touches contaminated surfaces. 

    You can protect yourself from this and other respiratory illnesses by:

  • washing hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, especially after using the toilet or changing diapers
  • avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • avoid kissing, hugging, 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

If your child/children are experiencing symptoms you are concerned about, you should contact his/her physician.

Please visit The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for more information at:  http://www.cdc.gov/non-polio-enterovirus/about/EV-D68.html

Sincerely,

 

Maynard Chapman
