Update on Enterovirus D-68

As you may have read in the news, a virus called Enterovirus D-68 is causing a spike in hospitalizations, mainly amongst children. The outbreak is confined to Alberta thus far, but we want to remind you to please keep your son at home if he is sick.

  • Symptoms are similar to those of a cold; fever, runny nose, congestion, wheezing, cough.
  • Children under the age of 6 months and asthmatics are especially at risk.

We ask parents to remind your son to please exercise caution and wash his  hands, especially before and after meals, after using the washroom and if he has been in frequent hand to hand contact.
