​Enterovirus is a common virus, with more than 100 strains.  Due to the harshness of symptoms for some, I have provided two links from the CDC with general info and guidelines:  http://www.cdc.gov/non-polio-enterovirus/about/EV-D68.html and http://www.cdc.gov/non-polio-enterovirus/about/EV68-infographic.html .
Take comfort in knowing I am monitoring illnesses, and we are disinfecting frequently touched surfaces in all rooms on a regular basis.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  I am happy to talk with you!  Kristin, RN
