Information on Coxsackie Virus
  •          Coxsackie virus is a common virus which lives in the human digestive tract.
  •          It spreads from person to person on unwashed hands and surfaces contaminated by feces. This is called the fecal-oral route. The virus can live on unwashed surfaces for several days. For example an athletic team, could spread the virus, by sharing and handling water bottles and equipment. It only takes one person who has not washed their hands thoroughly after toileting to start transmission.
  •          The fall is prime time for coxsackie as children return to school and the virus spreads quickly. In most cases the virus goes away in a few days.
  •          It is sometimes called hand, foot and mouth disease because of the appearance of  red blisters on the hands, feet and throat.
  •          As with all infectious disease-HANDWASH is the best defense. Handwashing after toileting, before and after diaper changing, and before eating is paramount.
  •          Vigilant surface cleaning in school bathrooms, classrooms ,health rooms and diaper changing areas is key.
  •          Children may have a fever and should not return to school until 24 hours after the fever is gone.
