The Zika Virus has been a global concern lately, and in recent months, has made its way to select parts of South Florida. Although reported cases of infection are extremely low and remain rare, Florida International University takes the threat seriously and is being proactive in its approach to preventing members of the community, especially its students, faculty and staff, from exposure by raising awareness.
At this moment, FIU is not aware of any member of the University community being personally impacted by Zika. In order for the community to remain vigilant against Zika, FIU urges each community member to use the following resources to educate yourself and stay informed:
Center For Disease Control (CDC)
US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
FIU's Department of Emergency Management (DEM)
Commonly Used Pesticides
