The Wanaque Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation, located in Haskell, has been instructed by the state's health department not to admit any new patients until the outbreak has ended. Of these 18 cases, there have unfortunately been six deaths of pediatric residents, according to WABC.

They are the cause of several infections including the common cold, respiratory tract infections, pink eye, diarrhea, bronchiolitis and pneumonia. The timing of the infections and illnesses is not clear.

Adenovirus is a family of viruses that typically impact young children and cause mild illness, according to the Health Department.

State officials were first notified of respiratory illnesses at the center on October 9, officials said.

The state's Health Department says another 12 children are sick due to the outbreak of adenovirus.

Kirgan added: 'The combination of a worse strain of adenovirus together with a fragile population has led to a more severe outbreak'. "The strain has been particularly associated with disease in communal living arrangements and can be severe". A inspection team sent to the facility on Sunday found some "minor" hand-washing deficiencies, which could have contributed to the outbreak.

The Center acts as a nursing home, rehabilitation center and pediatric center, offering short- and long-term care, according to its website.
