Defend Your Facility Against Respiratory Virus

June 16, 2021

Last week, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a health advisory about increased interseasonal respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) activity in the Southern United States.

RSV is a fairly common respiratory virus that causes mild, cold-like symptoms, but it can be more serious, particularly for infants and the elderly. The CDC advises health care providers to test for RSV even when a test for COVID-19 comes back negative, as the two viruses can have similar symptoms. The CDC is referring to the current outbreak as interseasonal as the virus tends to be more common in fall and winter months.

In the below ISSA Cleaning Industry Alert, Dr. Gavin Macgregor-Skinner, senior director of the Global Biorisk Advisory Council, (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, explains the significance of the CDC’s health advisory. Dr. Macgregor-Skinner also discusses how the cleaning industry can properly prepare for and defend against the rising RSV activity.
