DHHS says that EV-D68 is a respiratory illness, and that parents should look for signs of the illness in their children and take them to doctors if signs continue. Signs to look for are: fever of 100+ for several days, and trouble breathing.

There is no vaccine for the virus but preventive methods include: washing hands often, keeping unclean hands out of mouth, nose and eyes; avoid kissing, hugging or sharing cups or utensils with anyone who is sick.

People with asthma are at a higher risk for the virus.
