Travel Alert

August 1, 2014

The CDC and World Health Organization are currently monitoring and responding to an outbreak of Ebola Virus in West Africa. The countries Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone are affected. One person was also diagnosed in Nigeria after traveling from Liberia. 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.

For students who have recently travelled to these countries, please be aware of the symptoms of Ebola virus disease and seek medical attention immediately if any symptoms develop. Symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure to the virus, though 8-10 days is most common. Please make sure to wear a mask upon entry to any medical facility and report your recent travel history to medical personnel. For more information on the Ebola Virus outbreak, please visit the CDC website.
