What, if any, precautions are people using for pediatric ED patients with respiratory symptoms who could possibly have EV 68? We have received a litany of sort of vague recommendations from various sources. The most recent endorses contact and droplet precautions for fever, rash, runny nose, cough and myalgia.
Thanks in advance,
