1. Is this an Ivy League disease?

They had an outbreak at Dartmouth College in October.

2. Oh, goody...something else to worry about.

"Hand-foot-and-mouth disease - Symptoms and causes - Mayo Clinic. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases.../hand-foot-and-mouth-disease/.../syc-20353035 Jul 26, 2017 - Hand-foot-and-mouth disease a mild, contagious viral infection common in young children is characterized by sores in the mouth and a rash on the hands and feet. Hand-foot-and-mouth disease is most commonly caused by a coxsackie virus. There's no specific treatment for hand-foot-and-mouth disease."

But I do find "coxsackie virus" a bit amusing.
