  • It's That Time of Year Again
    RSV begins most frequently with fever, runny nose, cough, and sometimes wheezing. According to the CDC, during their first RSV infection, between 25% and 40% of infants and young children have signs or symptoms of bronchiolitis or pneumonia, and 0.5% to 2% require hospitalization. Most children recover from illness in eight to 15 days.

  • Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) in the Child Care Setting
    RSV causes infections of the upper respiratory tract (like a cold) and the lower respiratory tract (like pneumonia). It is the most frequent cause of lower respiratory infections, including pneumonia, in infants and children under 2 years of age. Almost 100 percent of children in child care get RSV in the first year of their life, usually during outbreaks during the winter months. In most children, symptoms appear similar to a mild cold.
