Health Alert:

Zika Information

With the approaching warm weather comes mosquitos. This brings us to the Zika virus you may have heard of in the news this past year.

This virus is circulating in twenty countries with the United States being one of them. That being said all reported cases in the US have been acquired while traveling. The mosquito that transmits the virus is present in some of the warmer states so that it is possible that the Zika virus may originate in the US in the future so preventative measures should be taken.

What you need to know:

1.      It is a viral infection spread through mosquito bites.

2.      The more common symptoms are headaches, fever, red eyes and skin rashes along with muscle and joint pain and are typically mild and only last a few days to a week—if they show up at all.

3.      The symptoms appear within 3 to 14 days of the mosquito bite.

4.      The biggest risk is to pregnant women as the virus is linked to birth defects—if you intend to travel check the CDC website for the locations of the higher risk areas. (www.cdc.gov/zika/geo/active-countries.html)

How to prevent Zika transmission:

· Wear long-sleeved shirts and pants; treat your clothing with permethrin and use insect repellents.

· Take steps to control mosquitoes both inside and outside of your home:

· Every night, empty/turn over/cover any items that hold water. Mosquitos lay eggs near water.

· Use an outdoor insect spray made to kill mosquitos in areas where they rest which is primarily in dark, humid areas like under patio furniture or carports.

· Repair window and door screens and do not prop doors open.


 MEDICATION ADMINISTRATION REMINDERS

If your student has medication or supplies in the clinic, please make arrangements to pick them up by the last day of school. Any medication not picked up must and will be destroyed on May 31, 2017
