It's Quittin' Time Wisconsin

 

 

Measles Notice

As you may have heard, the United States is currently experiencing a multi-state outbreak of measles. While there are currently no known cases of measles in Wisconsin, confirmed cases of the measles in Minnesota and Illinois may cause it to spread to this area.

Please refer to the CDC website http://www.cdc.gov/features/measles/index.html  or the Measles Fact Sheet https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/publications/p4/p42174.pdf for information about how you can protect yourself from this highly contagious virus.

Wisconsin state law requires the University to maintain a record of a student’s immunization status. Students who have not yet done so should complete and return the Health History Form, see link to form on the right of this page under important information. Please note that students who have not provided a record of immunizations may be excluded from campus if an outbreak of a vaccine preventable disease occurs.

Ebola Notice

CDC has posted Warning – Level 3 Travel Notices recommending that people avoid non-essential travel to Guinea and Sierra Leone at this time, and Level 2 Travel Notice for Mali. We advise that education-related travel to these countries be postponed until further notice.

The CDC no longer recommends U.S. residents avoid non-essential travel to Liberia but does recommend travelers practice enhanced precautions when traveling to the area.

CDC’s recommendations against non-essential travel, including education-related travel, are intended to help control the outbreak and prevent continued spread in two ways: to protect the health of US residents who would be traveling to the affected areas and to enable the governments of countries where Ebola outbreaks are occurring to respond most effectively to contain the outbreak.

To help identify students who present to the Carroll University Student Health Center at risk for Ebola, the Student Health Center has added an Ebola screening question to our sign in form. If a patient would answer yes to the screening question the patient would be brought back to the exam room immediately for a risk assessment and evaluation as per CDC recommendations.

  • CDC is not recommending colleges and universities isolate or quarantine students, faculty, or staff based on travel history alone.
  • However, the CDC recommends that Colleges and universities identify students, faculty, and staff who have been in countries where Ebola outbreaks are occurring within the past 21 days and should conduct a risk assessment with each identified person to determine his or her level of risk exposure (high- or low-risk exposures, or no known exposure).
  • To protect the Carroll Community, University Administration asks that any student, faculty, or staff member who has traveled to a country where Ebola outbreaks are occurring or has been exposed to Ebola within the past 21 days and who is NOT ill should call the Student Health Center 262-524-7233, Waukesha Public Health Department 262-896-8430, or Waukesha Memorial Hospital 262-928-2332 for a risk assessment. Also, if students have any visitors on campus from countries with Ebola outbreaks, Waukesha Public Health would like to be notified; please call 262-896-8430.
  • Any student, faculty, or staff member who has traveled to a country where Ebola outbreaks are occurring within the past 21 days and who IS ill should call Waukesha Public Health Department 262-896-8430 or Waukesha Memorial Hospital 262-928-2332 BEFORE going to Waukesha Memorial Hospital Emergency Department so the ER is prepared. Ill people who have traveled to high risk areas or have been exposed to Ebola should not come to the Student Health Center or any area clinics and should only go to Waukesha Memorial ER after calling first.

What should I do if I have traveled to one of the countries where the Ebola outbreaks are happening?

Contact the StudentHealth Center 262-524-7233, Waukesha Public Health Department 262-896-8430, or Waukesha Memorial Hospital 262-928-2332 for a risk assessment as outlined above.

Pay attention to your health after you return:

  • Monitor your health for 21 days.
    • Take your temperature every morning and evening.
    • Watch for other Ebola symptoms: severe headache, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, or unexplained bleeding or bruising.
    • If your temperature is 100.4°F (38°C) or higher or you have any other Ebola signs or symptoms, seek medical care immediately: call Waukesha Public Health Department 262-896-8430 or Waukesha Memorial Hospital 262-928-2332 BEFORE going to Waukesha Memorial Hospital Emergency Department so the ER is prepared.
      • Limit your contact with other people when you travel to the doctor; avoid public transportation.
      • Do not travel anywhere except to the hospital.
      • Limit your contact with other people if you are sick. Do not go to work, classes, or other student activities until you have been medically evaluated.
  • During the time that you are monitoring your health, if you have no symptoms, you can continue your normal activities, including work and school. If you get symptoms of Ebola, it is important to stay separated from other people and to call your doctor right away.

 

Traveling Abroad?

 
The Health Center NPs can help you prepare to study abroad or head off on your next NCEP trip. We can sign the required travel form, review and administer vaccines recommended for travel, and CDC recommendations for your travel destination. We also can write prescriptions for anti-malaria medication, and for medication to treat traveler's diarrhea. There is a $15 charge for a travel consult, which is billed to your student account or can be paid using Carroll Cash. Vaccine prices vary, but the Health Center bills the cost of the vaccine plus a $10 administration fee (see Health Center Fees under handouts section on the right of this page). The Health Center staff will give you a receipt to submit to your insurance if covered through a private insurance plan. If you have the WPS student insurance plan offered through the University, travel vaccines and consults are 100% covered if administered by the Student Health Center.
