Enterovirus D68: Information and Resources

Connecticut like much of the country has confirmed cases of Enterovirus D68, sickening school-age children. 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.
