If you or anyone you know has recently been exposed to Zika, you’re probably wondering how to protect themselves and their loved ones.
Here’s what you need to know.1.
Get tested early to help you protect yourself against infection1.
If you’re already infected, the best place to get tested is a local health department office.
If not, contact your local health office or visit a local emergency room or hospital emergency room.2.
Don’t travel without protective clothing.
It can be very dangerous for pregnant women to be exposed to mosquitoes while traveling to Zika-affected areas.
There are mosquito repellent options available to prevent mosquito bites.3.
Don: keep your eyes open during the daytime and not to look at screens that warn you about potential mosquito bites while you’re out in the dark.
It may be wise to wear goggles and a long-sleeved shirt and pants, even when you’re in a public place, especially if you’re outside in a group of people.
If your mosquito bite is severe, contact a doctor immediately and immediately wear protective clothing to protect your eyes.4.
Get your blood tested if you have symptoms of Zika.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a blood test before traveling to areas that are experiencing outbreaks of Zika virus.
You can get the test at your local hospital or at your nearest pharmacy.
It should take less than 24 hours to complete the test.5.
Stay hydrated, get enough rest, and get your temperature taken.
If a mosquito bite occurs, you can take fluids and get fluids to relieve your symptoms.
If symptoms persist, you should call a doctor and seek medical attention.6.
If the symptoms are severe and your symptoms continue, seek medical care.
If treatment is not available, you may be able to stay in a hospital overnight.7.
If possible, avoid public areas where people may be at risk of mosquito bites or mosquito-borne illness.
The CDC recommends that people avoid traveling alone, particularly if they have recently traveled.8.
Wear long sleeves and pants in public places, especially in areas with high concentrations of mosquitoes.
The U.S. Centers for Diseases Control and Protection recommends wearing long-length pants in the evenings, particularly in areas where mosquitoes are breeding.9.
Use insect repellents and be cautious of potential mosquito bite-causing activities.
The CDC recommends using insect repexant to prevent mosquitoes from biting people or biting the environment.
The EPA also recommends repelling people from entering areas where there are significant mosquito-related activity or where there may be large numbers of mosquitoes or where a high concentration of mosquitoes is expected.10.
Keep your eyes out for any sign of a virus.
If anyone you think may have Zika has fever or rash, immediately contact your doctor and let them know.11.
Wear a mask if you know someone who has been exposed.
The WHO recommends using a mask to protect against mosquito bites in public, particularly when you are alone.
If you or someone you know is infected with Zika and you’re considering traveling, get tested for the virus.
The best place for testing is a health care professional’s office, which is usually located at a local public health department.
If there are symptoms of infection, get a blood sample from the person you think is infected.
The test should take under two hours.
The sample will be sent to the CDC for testing.
If the results of the test indicate you are infected with the Zika viruses, you are asked to get your blood drawn.
This is done at a hospital or a pharmacy.
You should wait at least 24 hours after your blood sample is drawn before taking a trip, and be sure to wear a mask.
The person who was tested is then taken to the hospital for a test to confirm that they have Zika.
If no tests show Zika, a second test is ordered.
If they test positive, they are sent home.
If all tests are negative, they can be hospitalized for additional tests to confirm the virus in the blood.
If Zika infection is confirmed, they may need to go to the doctor for further testing.
If necessary, they will likely be admitted to the intensive care unit.
If Zika infection isn’t confirmed, a follow-up test is done to confirm whether Zika infection was caused by the virus itself.
This second test takes less than 48 hours to be performed.
The second test can detect the presence of Zika RNA in the body.
The results of this second test will be used to determine whether the virus is in your body.
If so, you’ll need to contact your health care provider and receive treatment.
The first test will take about 72 hours to detect Zika virus in your blood.
Once you get tested, your blood must be tested again.
The blood sample will take approximately 72 hours.
If it doesn’t match any of the samples in the first test, the second test should be done and your blood will be tested for Zika virus infection
