      • The Enterovirus D68, which causes respiratory illness in children, especially youngsters with asthma, has spread to New Jersey. However, there have been no confirmed cases of the Enterovirus in Middletown Schools. Because Enterovirus is transmitted through close contact with an infected person, or by touching objects or surfaces that are contaminated with the virus and then touching the mouth, nose, or eyes, it is important that the school district provide you with some pertinent information and constructive suggestions.
