Guidance on Zika Virus

Given the spread of the Zika virus and nature of transmission, New College of Florida is closely monitoring Zika virus updates. See http://www.cdc.gov/zika/  for further information.

For more information about the Zika virus, such as areas with Zika, prevention, symptoms, etc., please visit www.cdc.gov as a helpful resource. 

Travelers to Zika-affected areas should follow the precautions and guidelines for Mosquito Bite Prevention for Travelers published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  This is found at http://www.cdc.gov/zika/  

Travelers should stay informed on CDC updates and travel notifications at http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices. In addition, for local updates, check the Sarasota County Health Department website at http://sarasota.floridahealth.gov/

If needed, adjustments may be made to NCF-sponsored programs in impacted areas.
