Enterovirus D68
, which is starting to show up in New York, should serve as two good preparedness reminders for everyone. First, staying healthy and following good sanitation practices are your best defense against viruses like this, which do not have vaccines. Also, keeping enough supplies in the pantry so your family can take a “stay-cation” just makes sense. When illnesses like this start to take off in your community, being able to avoid public and communal areas until things burn themselves out can sometimes be the only way to avoid getting sick.
