We share with you a healthy level of concern regarding the recent reporting of Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68). We now know that from mid-August to Sept. 16 this virus has sickened at least 130 children with severe respiratory illness in 12 states, including Pennsylvania. An ongoing investigation by the CDC expects that many more states will have confirmed cases in the weeks to come. At this time, we are not aware of any cases in our school community, and we assure you that we remain informed of current events through contact with local, state, and national health organizations.
