Zika Virus-Important Information

The Zika virus is a mosquito borne disease. The International SOS website provides members with news, travel advice, and facts about this virus. For additional information go to https://pandemic.internationalsos.com/zika. You will need to provide a Rice Member ID number in order to gain access to some of the sites (11BYSG0000110).

Currently the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is advising pregnant women to "consider postponing travel to areas where Zika virus transmission is ongoing". Women who are thinking about or trying to become pregnant should consult with their healthcare provider before travelling. For more information go to http://www.cdc.gov/zika/.
