ZikaZika

TRAVEL ADVISORY:  The CDC has issued important information regarding the Zika Virus and its recent transmission in Florida.  Please read their website for more information. If you are planning to travel to an area where Zika transmission has been identified, please come by the health center to discuss health and safety recommendations or read the CDC information on prevention. If you have come to Florida from a geographic area with active Zika transmission, please watch for symptom development (rash, conjunctivitis, pink eye and fever) and seek health care at the Holzer Health Center or your primary care provider for evaluation.

Florida Tech is very concerned about the health and welfare of its students and community. We have been vigilant in following the CDC recommendations, including reducing mosquito breeding grounds on campus, communicating advisories and monitoring for further updates concerning the geographic areas infected in Florida. The Brevard County Health Department (BCHD) has worked with Holzer Health Center to develop Zika prevention, identification, and control policies. The Health Center is prepared for screening any symptomatic individuals, with testing for potential cases being referred to the BCHD. Symptomatic treatment will be offered and any potentially infected individuals will be counseled to refrain from activities to prevent transmission. Please see the CDC website for more information.
