While an estimated 80% of people infected with Zika virus don’t experience symptoms, and those with symptoms typically have a mild illness for up to one week, the CDC and World Health Organization are actively investigating concerns that Zika virus infections may lead to birth defects and an increased rate of Guillain-Barré syndrome. For now, we feel the Zika virus does not present great risk to our student population. However, we strongly recommend that all students do what they can to minimize exposure to mosquito bites, including the use of repellent, mosquito nets, and additional coverage during the evening hours. For additional information on the virus and mosquito precaution, please visit the CDC website at: http://www.cdc.gov/zika/. Students with specific health concerns can always consult Parton staff; call 802-443-5135 to schedule an appointment. Follow the Schools Abroad on Facebook and Instagram!
