International Travel During Break

(Preventive Care) Permanent link

If you are planning to travel outside of the U.S., the Center for Health and Well-Being encourages you to check Centers for Disease Control (CDC) travel alerts and information before traveling.  

CDC continues to issue Level 3 travel warnings for Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia recommending that individuals avoid all non-essential travel to these areas. IUP has temporarily suspended approval for university-related travel to these countries.

If you do travel to one of these countries in West Africa and you develop a fever or other Ebola-related symptoms, or are believed to be at risk for developing Ebola, you may not be able to depart from that foreign country until it can be determined you are not infected. Any travelers from outbreak areas will also be diverted to one of five U.S. airports monitoring all arrivals from these countries, where you will again be screened. If you have any signs or symptoms, you may be detained.

When you return to Pennsylvania, you will undergo monitoring by the Pennsylvania Department of Health for 21 days. Depending on your level of potential exposure, you may also be required to isolate yourself for up to 21 days.

For more information, contact the IUP Health Service at 724-357-2550.

Ebola Update

 Permanent link

The CDC urges U.S. residents to avoid nonessential travel to Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia because of an unprecedented outbreak of Ebola. Travel alerts to Nigeria and Republic of Congo have also been issued by the CDC. 

It is always  recommended you visit the CDC Travel Notices website before any international travel to learn about all travel alerts.

Ebola virus disease (also known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever) is a rare and deadly disease. The disease is native to several African countries and is caused by infection with one of the Ebola viruses. It is spread by direct contact with a sick person’s blood or body fluids. It is also spread by contact with contaminated objects or infected animals, including raw meat.

Symptoms include fever greater than 101º F, headache, joint and muscle aches, sore throat, and weakness, followed by diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach pain. Skin rash, red eyes, and internal and external bleeding may be seen in some patients.

Since this virus requires contact with blood or bodily fluid, transmission is rare. The disease is transmitted when symptoms are present. Therefore, it is important to seek health care immediately if you develop symptoms after traveling to these areas or believe you may have been exposed to the Ebola virus.

If you have recently traveled in this area, pay attention to your health after you return.

  • Monitor your health for 21 days regardless of possible exposure to Ebola. Take your temperature in the morning and evening. 
  • Seek medical care immediately if you develop fever, headache, achiness, sore throat, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, rash, or red eyes. 
    • Tell the doctor about your recent travel and your symptoms before you go to the office or emergency room. Advance notice will help the doctor care for you and protect other people who may be in the office.

IUP’s Center for Health and Well-Being continues to monitor this outbreak and will provide information as it becomes available.

For more information, visit the CDC or contact the Health Service at the IUP Center for Health and Well-Being at 724-357-2550.

CDC has also produced a two-page flyer that provides an excellent summary of the outbreak, transmission, and signs and symptoms.
