Zika Virus

As you may be aware, a virus called Zika has been linked to a serious birth defect called microcephaly. Zika is primarily spread to people through the bite of infected Aedes mosquitoes, which are present predominantly in South America, Central America and the Caribbean. Although a Zika case has been reported in Florida, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has not elevated the risk within the continental United States. However, pregnant women or women who are trying to become pregnant should exercise caution and minimize the possibility of mosquito bites by: 

  • Wearing long-sleeved shirts and long pants.
  • Staying in places with air conditioning or that use window, door screens, and netting.
  • Using Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-registered insect repellents with one of the following active ingredients: DEET, Picaridin, Bayrepel, icaridin, and IR3535. All EPA-registered insect repellents are evaluated for safety and effectiveness.
Visit the CDC website for more information about the Zika virus and for Zika-related travel notices.
