Although the Ebola virus poses no immediate threat to the general United States population, it is important to be aware of any changes in your health if you have recently traveled to one of the countries where the Ebola outbreak is occurring (currently Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria and the Republic of the Congo) and to seek immediate medical care. For further information please check the UW Colleges and UW-Extension Health Information page.
Little Wolf Blastomycosis Outbreak
The State of Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS), Division of Public Health (DPH) has requested assistance disseminating information to college and university student health services about the blastomycosis outbreak
You may be aware that there is an ongoing outbreak of blastomycosis occuring in WI associated with activities (tubing, kayaking) on the Little Wolf River near New London, WI. This is a popular activity, with thousands of persons doing the tubing trip on a summer weekend. The mean age of our cases is about 23 years, so many of them are of college age.
We would like to ensure that providers at student health services in colleges & universities throughout Wisconsin are aware of this outbreak and maintain a high index of suspicion for blastomycosis among persons who present with compatible clinical signs and symptoms – especially those with a history of exposure to this river. Attached is a provider alert that we distributed back on 8/7/15 which outlines clinical presentation, diagnosis, and reporting.
To update the outbreak information for you, as of 8/25/15, the Wisconsin Division of Public Health is aware of 26 confirmed cases of blastomycosis and 22 probable cases. There are additional persons who have visited the Little Wolf River area and have compatible illnesses of varying severity, but whose tests are pending or negative. There are also exposed symptomatic persons who have not yet sought medical evaluation.
Exposures resulting in illness have occurred from the Memorial day weekend into July. With a 2-15 week incubation period, it’s likely that we will see more cases – some of whom may not even be ill at this time. Some of these individuals may develop symptoms after returning to their college or university and may present at university health services.
Updated information can be found on the DHS blastomycosis webpage at https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/disease/blastomycosis.htm
If you develop symptoms including cough, fever, chills, muscle aches, joint pain or chest pain, visit your health care provider immediately.
