I live in WA state and I was just wondering if maybe I should get checked this virus because a couple friends and I went to Mexico for spring break. I did get really sick when I got back, but I just assumed it was due to the weather change since its hot over there and it was freezing cold here when I arrived into Spokane, WA.
