Wash Your Hands!!!!

If you haven't heard (because you live under a rock!), Dnterovirus D68 is closing in.  While there haven't been confirmed cases in Maryland yet, I know it's just a matter of time.  This message from the health department confirmed it!

Please, PLEASE wash your hands often! EVD68 is hand sanitizer resistant, which means you HAVE to wash your hands to keep it from spreading. 

And for the love of all things holy, DO NOT send your kid to school sick!! This virus turns bad quickly and it spreads rapidly.  I know that childcare is often an issue and who wants to take a day off, but this is serious here.  Be careful.

Read this too.  Maybe it will help you understand my position. http://allthathathlife.wordpress.com/2014/09/16/just-a-little-cold/

NO, I'm not overreacting.  What could be s bad cold for your child could be deadly for mine.  It's my reality.
