    PROTECT YOURSELF FROM MERS

    The outbreak of MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) in the Republic of Korea has been linked to healthcare facilities. The risk to travelers is low, but you should still follow these health tips:

    PROTECT YOURSELF

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water.

    • Avoid touching your face.

    • Avoid close contact with sick people.

    PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR HEALTH

    • Watch for symptoms of MERS including fever, cough, and shortness of breath.

    • If you get sick during the 14 days after you leave Korea, call a doctor. This is especially important if you visited a hospital or clinic while you were there.

    • Tell the doctor about your recent travel before you go in for your appointment.
