Dear Parents/Guardians,

With the recent reports of Enterovirus-D68 (EV-D68) in our State, I want you to know that I understand your concerns and that you have many questions surrounding it. To help address some of these questions, the New Jersey Department of Health has developed a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document regarding EV-D68. These FAQs are available at http://nj.gov/health/cd/documents/faq/ev_faq.pdf and are continuously updated, so please check back often. We will continue to monitor the instances of the virus throughout the State and our district and be in contact with additional information if necessary. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns regarding EV-D68 and your child, please contact your School Nurse:
