Zika Virus

Zika Virus disease Fact Sheet

Zika virus is spread to people through mosquito bites.  Zika virus is found in tropical areas worldwide, and since 2015 in South and Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean (including Puerto Rico), and in travellers returning to the U.S.

This virus can be dangerous to pregnant women, and they should avoid or postpone travel to affected areas. 

Protect yourself by using insect repellent and wearing long-sleeve shirts and pants.  

If you get sick after travelling see your doctor and tell them where you have travelled.
