This week, Reese-Willis discusses October being National Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Awareness Month. RSV is a “common and dangerous virus that impacts the respiratory system of children two years old and under,” according to the AARC.

Easy tips to keep children and adults safe from RSV would be wash hands and toys, call your pediatrician, wash hands before holding baby and always remember to sneeze into a tissue so germs do not spread.
