Dear Members of the Campus Community,

In a few weeks classes will be ending.  Looking ahead, many may be making travel plans for the holidays and winter break.  Although news of Ebola is in the media daily, other infectious diseases are among us, here and abroad. 

If planning on traveling, Student Health Services (SHS) recommends:

  1. Get a flu shot. Americans have a greater risk of dying of flu than Ebola.
  2. If traveling abroad, make sure your immunizations are up to date and appropriate for your destinations.  Infectious diseases, from measles to malaria, are issues in different parts of the globe. Even cruise ships have been subject to the norovirus and foodborne illnesses.
  3. Monitor the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)—Travel website for the most current information:  http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel

Regarding Ebola:

  1. As of this writing, the CDC has Level 3 Travel Warnings for Guinea, 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 the affected countries whose destinations are in the state. Such travelers, particularly health workers, may be subject to medical evaluation, travel restrictions, home isolation or other quarantine. The University advises that any education-related travel to these countries be postponed until further notice.
  2. Health issues are dynamic, and the policies and updates are constantly changing.  The University suggests you continue to monitor the CDC and 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 410-543-6943.
