RSV Updates

Respiratory Syncytial Virus, commonly known as RSV, has been detected in Revere by the Department of Public Health. Please note, the following information is not individual medical advice and we recommend contacting your physician with specific questions.

What is RSV?
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), respiratory syncytial (sin-SISH-uhl) virus is common and usually causes mild, cold-like symptoms. Most people recover in a week or two, but RSV can be serious, especially for infants, older adults, and immunocompromised individuals RSV in infants is a common cause of severe infections, like pneumonia.

RSV is currently on the rise in both Massachusetts and nationally, based on clinical and environmental data sources. There are basic steps to help prevent RSV spread:

  • Wash your hands often—for at least 20 seconds using soap and water
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your shirt sleeve rather than your hands
  • Avoid close contact with others, such as kissing, shaking hands, and sharing cups and eating utensils
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs and mobile devices
