The mission of the Student Health Center is to provide primary healthcare and to promote the health and wellbeing of students of the University of San Diego to facilitate maximum academic and personal growth.
Confirmed Mumps Case
The SHC has been working closely with San Diego County Public Health Services to determine if a nonresidential USD student has mumps. We have now confirmed with laboratory test confirmation of the illness. Potential exposure to the campus community is low as the patient lives off campus and has not attended any classes or participated in any campus activities during the contagious period. Due to the limited exposure to the campus community the County Public Health department does not recommend further action or notifications at this time. The SHC will continue to monitor the current case and will continue to follow any further recommendations by the County Public Health department.
For more helpful information about Mumps and Mumps Vaccination please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.

Schedule your FLU SHOT
The CDC has issued a Travel Alert (Level 2-Practice Enhanced Precautions) for people traveling to regions and certain countries where Zika virus transmission is ongoing (including most of Central and South America, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the Pacific Islands-this could change in the future). Active transmission of Zika has recently been confirmed in Florida, near the city of Miami. The concern is mainly for pregnant women, but all travelers are advised to practice enhanced precautions to avoid spreading the virus beyond the currently affected areas. If you or a close contact has traveled to a Zika affected region, please contact a healthcare provider if you have symptoms consistent with Zika infection, or if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant in the near future. For more information and current status visit CDC's website.
"Zika and many other diseases are spread by mosquitos. Protecting yourself from mosquito bites is an important preventive action, especially in areas of the world where serious mosquito-borne illnesses are common. Check the CDC Travel website for destination-specific prevention information before you travel.
