Zika Virus

Hillsborough Community College is actively monitoring activity related to the Zika virus.  
The best way to prevent Zika is to protect yourself from mosquito bites. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to follow the CDC guidelines which include:  

  • Use EPA-registered insect repellent when outdoors. 
  • Treat protective clothing — boots, pants, socks — with permethrin. 
  • Repair holes in screens 
  • Empty containers with water such as tires, buckets, planters and toys.
