EHST Safety Tip of the Month

The October safety tip brought to you by the Environmental Health & Safety Team:

October usually brings cooler fall weather which can be a welcome break from the dog days of summer, but we can also see a rise in the number of respiratory illness cases as people tend to stay indoors more often.

Enteroviruses are just one of the many common causes of respiratory illness. One less common virus, EV-D68, has gotten some well-deserved bad publicity lately. Click HERE to read more to read about symptoms and ways to project yourself and others from enterovirus infections.
