Exclusion from childcare, preschool, school or work is usually not necessary but people experiencing fever from dengue infection should not be in an environment where they may be bitten by mosquitoes. If this is not possible they should stay at home until they have no fever and are therefore no longer infectious (usually 3 to 5 days).
There is no vaccine to prevent human infection by this virus.
Personal protection and the environmental management of mosquitoes are important in preventing illness.
Protect yourself from mosquito bites at all times in dengue areas.
