Travel AlertJune 17, 2015
Due to the current Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak in West Africa, the CDC and State Department have issued Travel Warnings for this region. Please be advised of this situation if you are considering travel to West Africa and make an appointment for pre-travel counseling at Student Health. The University’s policy on student travel prohibits travel to countries under a U.S. Department of State Travel Warning.
For students who have travelled within the past three weeks from West Africa (specifically Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone), seek medical attention if you develop any of the following symptoms: fever, headache, bodyaches, weakness, diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain. It is important to understand that EVD is not an airborne disease. Individuals may become infected as a result of contact with the bodily fluids (vomit, diarrhea, sputum, blood, etc.) from persons who are confirmed to have EVD or who have died from EVD. Please call before arriving at Student Health to prevent the spread of illness to others and to expedite your care. For more information on the Ebola Virus outbreak, please visit the CDC website.
Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is a viral respiratory illness of concern in travelers who have returned from the Arabian Peninsula (Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Iran, Iraq, Israel, West Bank, Gaza, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Syria, Yemen, United Arab Emirates) and the Republic of Korea (South Korea). Please contact Student Health if you have returned from any of these countries in the past three weeks and have fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Again, please call before arriving at Student Health to prevent the spread of illness to others and to expedite your care. For more information on Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, please visit the CDC website.
