2. Who Is at Risk for Adenovirus?

Anyone can catch adenovirus. Children and the elderly are at an increased risk. Kids often come into contact with the bodily fluids of other kids at school or on the playground. Some older adults have weakened immune systems that leave them more susceptible to adenoviruses. If you suspect you have an adenovirus, whatever your age, monitor the symptoms closely. If they worsen, see your healthcare provider.
