Enterovirus D68: Information and Resources

The first case of Enterovirus D68 has been confirmed in Connecticut, after sickening children in Missouri and Illinois and spreading to other states. This virus is a respiratory illness that causes mild cold- or flu-like symptoms in most of those infected, but can sometimes cause difficulty breathing and require hospitalization.

Anyone can become infected with the enterovirus, however, infants, children, and teens are more likely to be affected because they have less immunity to such viruses.

The resources below provide more information on the virus and how to stop its spread.
