Information from the School Nurse regarding the Enterovirus

October 9th, 2014

This letter is in reference to the EV-D68 infection (enterovirus), which has been recently discussed in the media. Four cases have been recently identified in Philadelphia area.  We are sharing some information with parents to ensure that the community is aware of the facts.

In August 2014, hospital officials in Kansas City, Missouri, and Chicago, Illinois, notified the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of an increase in severe respiratory illness among children seen in the emergency rooms and admitted to hospitals. Specimens initially tested positive for rhinovirus and enterovirus. The CDC did further testing and identified Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) in specimens from patients in both hospitals in Kansas City and Chicago.

Enteroviruses are a common source of infection among children. These viruses can cause respiratory illness, fever, rash, and neurological illnesses. Most infected people are asymptomatic or experience only mild forms of these symptoms. The primary symptoms are indicative of respiratory illness. Children with a history of asthma are more likely to experience moderate to severe respiratory symptoms (e.g., wheezing). Transmission of EV-D68 is believed to be through respiratory secretions, nasal mucous, or sputum/saliva. Like the common cold, this virus is likely spread when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or touches surfaces. There is no vaccine or antiviral available for EV-D68 infection, and the only treatment is to take supportive measures.

It is most important is to have in place preventive measures.  This includes staying home from school when sick.   Hand washing is the single best way to prevent the spread of infection.  Other preventative measures include avoidance of close contact with others.

Please do not hesitate to call the Nurse’s Office (ext. 262) with any questions or concerns.
