Zika virus is a mosquito-borne virus that is transmitted to people through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. The most common symptoms of Zika are fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis (red eyes). The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting from several days to a week.
While most people think of dangerous cold during long winters in northern states, the reality is that cold-related illness, both hypothermia and frostbite, occur throughout the year, in every state. In one three-year period, the state of New Mexico had the 4th highest rate of death from hypothermia. Hypothermia is defined as a core body temperature less than 95° F.
Decorating for the holidays is fun and an important part of our observances and traditions; but when decorations are not used properly, they can result in fires, injuries and death. Students, faculty and staff are urged to follow some simple guidelines to keep safety in mind when decorating on campus, at work and at home.
