Zika Virus

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued travel alerts for countries where Zika virus is prevalent.  Florida is the first state in the continental US where local transmission of Zika from mosquitoes is being reported.  Travelers can use the CDC “Know Your Zika Risk” tool for tailored risk and prevention information.

  • The majority of people who are infected with the Zika virus do not become ill.  If symptoms develop, they are usually mild and include fever, rash, painful joints, and/or conjunctivitis.  
  • Zika infection has been linked to a birth defect called microcephaly.  The CDC is advising pregnant women to avoid travel to areas where Zika virus is occurring.  
  • The Zika virus is primarily spread by infected mosquito bites to people. Avoiding mosquito bites is the best form of prevention for those traveling to a Zika risk area.  Travelers returning from an area with Zika risk should avoid mosquito bites for 3 weeks.
  • Zika infection can also occur through sexual transmission.  Condoms can reduce the chance of getting Zika from sex.  Pregnant women with sexual partners who live in or have traveled to areas with Zika should abstain from sex or use condoms during sex every time.

Take-Care-Of-Yourself Checklist

It's a good idea to have a few self-care items in your dorm room for minor illnesses. Consider keeping a small supply of the following items (which are available at low prices through the Student Health Pharmacy):

  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Bandaids
  • A digital thermometer
  • Pain relievers, like ibuprofen (Advil) and acetaminophen (Tylenol)
  • Benadryl for allergic reactions
  • Cough and cold medications

The Well

  • One-on-one consultations and presentations on topics such as alcohol and other drugs, smoking cessation, nutrition, disordered eating/body image, rape, sexual assault and domestic violence, stress management, and sexual health.
  • A wide array of student support groups and special events.  Check out the events calendar at the bottom of the Well's homepage.
  • Volunteer opportunities and ways to get involved around campus.
