Information about the Zika virus

What is Zika virus disease (Zika)?

Zika is a disease caused by Zika virus that is spread to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito and sexual contact. The most common symptoms of Zika are fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis (red eyes). The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting for several days to a week.

NYS Higher Ed Immunization Collaborative is thrilled to welcome Queensborough along with KBCC, HOSTOS, BMCC in CUNY into the NYS Higher Ed Immunization Collaborative.

As the first of its kind in higher education, this Collaborative will support campuses in addressing the multi-level factors that impact immunization rates through rapid testing, adaptation, implementation, and dissemination of best practices using quality improvement methods and a shared learning approach. Participating in this new statewide Collaborative is a unique and high impact opportunity for learning, networking, improving, and leading within and across our institutions in developing new knowledge; bringing about change that will increase immunization rates; reducing the incidence of vaccine preventable disease on our campuses; and ensuring that our students are healthier and our campuses safer.

Joining as a partner in the NYS Higher Ed Immunization Collaborative gives CUNY access to all project activities and technical support for the period of June 2016 to January 2018. The faculty -- from New York University, the NYS Department of Health, the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other subject-matter experts on immunization and quality improvement -- will provide coaching and support to participating teams.

CUNY will be a tremendous asset to this exciting new endeavor, and we look forward to working more closely with you in the coming years.

Health Management

To protect the health and safety of our campus community, CUNY has in place an Infectious Disease Protocol that all campuses adhere to in the rare case that an outbreak of an infectious disease is reported. This protocol is posted to University¹s website and can also be viewed here.
