RSV
Important News & Update

When your little one comes home from daycare or school with a fever and no appetite, you may be wondering what you're dealing with: a cold? The flu? Even Covid-19? Keep your eyes peeled for a few other telltale symptoms that may signal RSV. While RSV season can vary by region, it tends to be most prevalent from October through April.
What exactly is RSV? Dr. Schmidt, Chief Medical Officer for COMC, describes it as a respiratory virus that causes cold-like symptoms, which may vary by age.
Who's at risk? RSV is more common in children that adults.
"Most kids will become infected with RSV before that are 2 years old," Dr. CLine, Pediatrician at COMC Osage Beach explained. "However, adults and older children can get infected and will have what looks like a cold. People can also get re-infected, for instance if their child brings it home from daycare." Cases are typically mild, but older adults and infants can experience severe symptoms.
If your child has RSV and is experiencing any severe symptoms, such as difficulty breathing, you should take him or her to a COMC clinic currently testing in Richland, Camdenton, and Osage Beach during clinic hours or call 911 after hours.
