- Decreased appetite
Help prevent the spread of RSV:
- Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your upper shirt sleeve, not your hands
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
- Avoid close contact, such as kissing, shaking hands, and sharing cups and eating utensils, with others
- Clean frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs and mobile devices
Be sure to stay up to date with vaccinations, including COVID-19 and influenza vaccines.
