Advice For Travellers

Although the total number of cases is relatively small, the risk of exposure to this virus might vary from place to place on the island and from low to high. All travellers to areas where the dengue fever virus is active can reduce their risk of exposure by taking all necessary precautions to avoid mosquito bites. Many persons with dengue fever do not seek medical care and are not reported to health authorities. There may be many more cases in the community than the reports indicate.
