There are several simple measures you can take to protect yourself and your family from exposure and help prevent further spread.
What you should know:
- Zika symptoms are generally mild, but it has been linked to severe birth defects if a woman contracts the virus during pregnancy.
- There is no vaccine to prevent Zika, and there is no specific treatment for infected individuals.
- Zika is primarily spread by the bites of infected mosquitoes.
- Wear lightweight, loose-fitting clothing to cover skin while outdoors. Wear socks that cover ankles and lower legs.
- Cover exposed skin with an Environmental Protection Agency-approved insect repellent. Always follow product instructions when applying. If using sunscreen, apply that first then apply repellent.
We are looking forward to a successful school year and we will continue to take whatever steps are necessary to maintain the safety and well-being of our students and families.
