Notes from the school nurse:  What is the Zika virus?  The Zika virus is carried by a certain mosquito. The symptoms can include fever, rash, joint pain and red eyes.  Many people never know they are sick with the Zika virus.  Use insect repellant when you are outside in the warm weather and wear long sleeves and pants to protect you from mosquito bites.  If you travel to a warm, tropical place, be sure to take insect repellent with you and use it.
