Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is an illness characterized by prolonged, debilitating fatigue and multiple nonspecific symptoms such as headaches, recurrent sore throats, muscle and joint pains and memory and concentration difficulties.
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) in the Child Care Setting CMV is a virus with which most people eventually become infected. Children and staff in the child care setting are especially likely to be infected. Children usually have no symptoms when they become infected with CMV. Occasionally, older children in child care usually will develop an illness similar to mononucleosis, with a fever, sore throat, enlarged liver, and malaise. However, there is no reason to exclude a child excreting CMV from child care.
