Q: What precautions is Syracuse University Health Services taking regarding Ebola on campus?
A: SU Health Services has taken a proactive role since the beginning of the semester on precautions regarding Ebola. Per CDC protocol, we are screening all patients at check-in to see if they have traveled to West Africa within the past 21 days. Health Services is in constant communication with relevant internal offices to coordinate ongoing prevention efforts. We also receive continued guidance from the Onondaga County Department of Health, New York State Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control.
Q: What if a student presents to Health Services who has traveled to West Africa in the past 21 days?
A: The patient will immediately be separated in a private room with its own bathroom, proper infection prevention and control measures will be utilized; standard, contact, and droplet precautions are recommended and our Medical Director will notify our local health department immediately if Ebola is suspected.
Q: How is Ebola transmitted?
A: Ebola is not a food-, water-, or air-borne illness. The virus is transmitted through:
Q: What can I do to protect myself from contracting infectious diseases like Ebola?
A: Ebola poses little risk to the US general population and is not contagious until symptoms appear. It is spread through direct contact with blood or body fluids (such as urine, saliva, sweat, feces, vomit, and semen) of an infected person, or with objects like needles that have been contaminated with the virus. This includes through intimate contact, such as sex, since Ebola can still be found in semen for 7 weeks after a person has recovered.
It is always good to avoid contact with anyone who is sick, especially with fever. Washing your hands frequently and always prior to touching your face or handling food. Use soap and water if available and use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Doing so can help you prevent getting sick from many different illnesses.
Q: Where can I obtain more information?
A: Click on the following link: http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/page/advice-for-colleges-universities-and-students-about-ebola-in-west-africa for detailed information from the CDC.
In cooperation with Syracuse University, we've compiled a list of helpful resources for you to use in the event of an emergency.
Pink, itchy eyes? Pink eye – or conjunctivitis – is common and spreads easily. It is usually mild and will often get better on its own, but sometimes needs medical treatment, depending on the cause. Know the symptoms, when to seek treatment, and how to help prevent it.
Check out the latest guidelines from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).
Where can I get the vaccine?
The flu vaccine is available in the Pharmacy at Health Services, 111 Waverly Avenue. For more information, call 315-443-5691.
Is it too late to get the flu vaccine?
You should get the flu vaccine as soon as it is available in your area. Flu season usually peaks in January or February, but it can occur as late as May. Early immunization is the most effective, but it is not too late to get the vaccine in December, January, or beyond.
Will I need to pay for the vaccine?
No, the flu vaccine is free at Health Services for all SU/ESF students and SU faculty. All you will need to bring with you is your SU/SUNY-ESF ID card with you.
