CMV Awareness Month - June 2016
On Tuesday (May 31), the Board of County Commissioners approved a proclamation recognizing June, 2016 to be CMV Awareness Month.
Cytomegalovirus, commonly referred to as CMV, is a member of the herpesvirus family. It is common and typically harmless to the general population - between 50 and 80 percent of people in the United States have had a CMV infection before the age of 40. Once CMV is in a person's body, it stays there for life. CMV is the most common viral infection that infants are born with in the United States. Approximately 1-4 percent of uninfected women have a primary (or first) CMV infection during a pregnancy, and about 40 percent of women who become infected with CMV for the first time during pregnancy pass the virus to their babies (quoted from nationalcmv.org). For more information about CMV, visit the NationalCMV.org website.
