Zika Virus, Dengue, Chikunguya & Yellow Fever

Mosquitos that carry Zika virus, Dengue, Chikunguya and Yellow Fever are of primary concern in Latin America, and Brazil is no exception. The WHO has declared the Zika virus an international public health emergency. We strongly recommend that all students do what they can to minimize exposure to mosquito bites, including the use of repellent, mosquito nets, and additional coverage during the evening hours.  For additional information on the virus and mosquito precaution, please visit the CDC website at: http://www.cdc.gov/zika/
