Are you aware of CMV and the risks in early education settings?

There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of CMV or cytomegalovirus. But by the age of 40, up to 85% of Australian adults have been infected with this virus. CMV is common in early childhood and, while generally a mild virus, can have more serious implications for pregnant people contracting the disease.

We discuss cytomegalovirus (CMV) and why ECEC providers should be proactive about addressing and preventing its spread.
