Summer Travel Plans? Bring Back Memories, Not Zika!

Outbreaks of Zika are occurring in many countries. Pregnant women should not travel to areas affected by Zika, because infection has been linked to birth defects. The CDC keeps track of areas where Zika is spread and provides guidance for travel, prevention, testing, and pregnancy planning.

DSHS recommends travelers prevent infection by

  • Avoiding mosquito exposure.
  • Taking precautions against sexual transmission.
  • Using screens or closing windows and doors in hotel rooms.
