2013-14 Insurance Information
Enterovirus D68 Information - ( EV-D68) -EV-D68 is one of many non-polio enteroviruses. This virus was first identified in California in 1962, but it has not been commonly reported in the US. There have been clusters of cases recently reported in 6 states. Pennsylvania does not have any confirmed cases.
EV-D68 can cause mild to severe respiratory illness. The mild symptoms may include fever, runny nose, sneezing, cough, body and muscle aches. Severe symptoms may include difficulty breathing and wheezing. People with asthma may have a higher risk for severe respiratory illness.
This virus is spread from person to person by way of respiratory secretions, such as saliva, nasal mucus or sputum. It likely spreads when an infected person coughs, sneezes or touches contaminated surfaces.
You can protect yourself by following these steps: Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, especially after changing diapers; avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands; avoid kissing, hugging and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who are sick; disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as toys and doorknobs, especially if someone is sick.
Since people with asthma are at higher risk for respiratory illnesses, they should regularly take medicines and maintain control of their illness during this time. They should take advantage of influenza vaccine since people with asthma have a difficult time with repiratory illnesses. Asthma can also be controlled by avoiding the triggers that can cause an attack, such as tobacco smoke.
All new full‑time undergraduate students are required to complete a physical exam and provide an up‑to‑date immunization record.
A registered nurse is available weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to provide emergency first aid, treat minor illness, and provide information and education.
In case of serious emergency, students are sent to area hospitals.
Students who are seriously ill when Health Services is closed are advised to call Public Safety at 610-902-8245 for an immediate course of action.
