Seattle Children's Hospital announced Friday that two children have tested positive for the uncommon Enterovirus D-68 strain.
The hospital says the two children had preexisting conditions that exacerbated their condition but were stable enough to be discharged from the hospital earlier this week.
"Confirmation of these cases indicates that EV-D68 is likely in our communities and that we can expect to see additional cases over the coming weeks," said Dr. Jeff Duchin, Chief of Communicable Disease and Epidemiology at Public Health - Seattle & King County. "But we can’t predict at this time how severe or how long an EV-D68 outbreak might be locally."

The girl told a school resource officer that a man was standing outside his van with the sliding side door open near the shopping center at Coburg and Willakenzie Roads, asking several times to give her a ride. She denied the man's repeated requests, left the area, and walked home safely.
The student described the man as possibly white, in his mid-to-late 30s, about 6-feet tall with a thin build. He had short hair, balding on top with facial stubble.
