#LatinaBloggers Connect and Share Tips for #RSVprotection

We all learned a great deal about RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) from our last campaign for World Prematurity Day. However, the risk of infection is also a concern for toddlers and school-aged children. Whether it's part-time or full-time, children who spend any amount of time in a daycare or school setting are at risk for contracting contagious germs and viruses, such as RSV. RSV is a common, seasonal virus - it can live on surfaces, like doorknobs, countertops, toys, and bedding for several hours and is often spread through touching, hugging and kissing. Children are constantly sharing toys and supplies, which in turn increases the risk of infection.

There is no treatment for RSV. However, there are many things one can do to help prevent its spread.  Forty #LatinaBloggers are sharing their prevention tips and personal experiences with RSV over the next two weeks. Please be on the look out for the hashtag #RSVprotection on Twitter to read how you can help spread awareness and please note the important tips provided. For more information, visit RSV Protection.
