Protecting Workers from Cytomegalovirus Exposure

Childcare and healthcare workers are among those at increased
risk for exposure to cytomegalovirus (CMV). A common virus, Cytomegalovirus
(CMV) affects thousands of workers in childcare centers and healthcare
facilities. These workers are at the greatest risk of exposure because the
virus is often spread through saliva and other body fluids of young children.
The US-American Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published
a new webpage on CMV, that explains how to minimize health risks associated
with workers'exposure to this virus. CMV is especially hazardous for workers
who are or may become pregnant, or who could spread the virus to a sexual
partner who is or may become pregnant.
