Potential Cost of Not Warning Child Care Providers about CMV
Examples of CMV Protocols In other countries
▪️ In Queensland, Australia, suggested control measures include: "relocating workers who are pregnant, or who expect to become pregnant, to care for children aged over two to reduce contact with urine and saliva" (Queensland Government). SOURCE
▪️ In Germany, to protect daycare workers from primary CMV infection, their “CMV serostatus must be checked at the beginning of their pregnancy.” If the worker “is seronegative, she is excluded from professional activities with children under the age of three years” (Stranzinger et al., 2016). SOURCE
▪️ According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), children with known CMV should not be excluded from group care; "CMV excretion is so prevalent that attempts at isolation or segregation of children who excrete CMV are impractical and inappropriate". SOURCE
