Enterovirus D68

Enteroviruses are very common viruses that cause respiratory illnesses similar to common colds. Most people infected with an enterovirus have mild symptoms that do not require a doctor's care. However, there have been cases in children with underlying health issues, particularly with asthma or other lung conditions, are experiencing difficulty breathing and require hospitalization. Idaho's Public Health officials are working closely with hospitals, laboratories, and healthcare providers to identify any possible clusters of respiratory illnesses caused by Enterovirus D68. We are also working with these partners as well as schools to ensure the parents and the public has information about the virus. Eastern Idaho Public Health District staff are available to answer questions about Enterovirus D68 by calling (208) 533-3152. Click here for more information.
