appropriate for your destinations. Infectious diseases, from measles

have been subject to the norovirus and foodborne illnesses.

Liberia and Sierra Leone. There are policies in place by the federal
government regarding reentry in the United States by travelers who have been
in those three countries. In addition, The Maryland Department of
Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) is monitoring the health of travelers from

DHMH websites for more information:
Finally, such basic precautions as proper rest, exercise, hydration and
frequent hand washing or use of hand sanitizer can contribute to a healthier
holiday and winter break. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to
contact SHS at 410-543-6262 or the Wicomico County Health Department at
