Coloradans can help reduce transmission of RSV in several ways.
Stay home when you are sick, including not visiting or interacting with people who may be at higher risk, including older adults, young children, and infants.
Frequently wash your hands with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
Encourage children to cover their nose and mouth with a tissue or upper arm sleeve when they cough or sneeze, throw away the tissue after they use it, and clean hands as instructed above.
Clean potentially contaminated surfaces, like doorknobs, tables, handrails, etc.
Avoid sharing cups and eating utensils and touching your face with unwashed hands.
If your child is demonstrating early signs of respiratory distress, consider taking them to their primary care doctor for evaluation.
Coloradans can find more information about RSV rates in Colorado on CDPHE’s website.
