Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV)

14th Sep 2021

Following the easing of current Covid-19 restrictions people are starting to mix more, as a result we are expecting a higher than normal number of RSV/bronchiolitis infections in young children for this time of year.


To help communicate this and support parents and carers with what to look out for and what to do if their child becomes unwell the PHA have produced some information in the form of a leaflet and factsheet.


There is also a link below to the PHA website where the resources can be found.
