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. 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.
Learn more about the Zika virus at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
Queensborough Community College will continue to monitor this situation and will notify you of any further developments. Meanwhile, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. You can also visit the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene website for more information on the Zika virus as well as Zika travel warning information.
It is the mission of the Student Health Services of the City University of New York to make quality health care and health education available to all of its students in order to contribute to their academic success and personal growth.
The provision of these medical and psychological services will be sensitive to the needs of our non-traditional student body and will be tailored to the cultural diversity of the CUNY population.
With guidance from the Health Services Advisory Council, all programs are designed to help meet or exceed The Minimal Standards adopted by the CUNY Board of Trustees in May 2000. In a commitment to retain students who will successfully graduate from The City University, health promotion and disease prevention are our primary goals
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.
