Planning Spring Break? What You Need to Know About the Zika Virus

On February 1, 2016, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Zika virus, a mosquito-transmitted disease, a Public Health Emergency of Interna- tional Concern after a team of 18 experts and advisers “looked in particular at the strong association, in time and place, between infection with the Zika virus and a rise in detected cases of congenital malformations and neurological compli- cations.”

At this point in time, no travel restric- tions have been imposed by either the WHO or the US State Department. How- ever, more than 25 countries plus the US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and Ameri- can Samoa have active Zika virus cases.

How Can I Stay Up-To-Date on Zika with Spring Break Around the Corner?

The US State Department (http:// www.state.gov/travel) is an excellent resource for those planning to travel abroad. Here, visitors can find current travel warnings, enrollment for the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (https:// step.state.gov/step), and general travel tips. In addition, the CDC continues to update their Zika website regularly with facts sheets, resources, publications, and information on affected regions (http:// www.cdc.gov/zika) .
