Zika Resources (Click to Expand)

  1. Zika virus disease is a nationally notifiable condition. Healthcare providers should report suspected Zika virus disease cases to their state, local, or territorial health department to facilitate diagnosis and mitigate risk of local transmission. State, local, and territorial health departments should report laboratory-confirmed and probable cases to CDC. Kindly refer to the CDC Zika Website for the most up-to-date information and guidance at  http://www.cdc.gov/zika/index.html
  2. CDC has updated its interim guidance for health care providers in the United States caring for pregnant women with possible Zika virus exposure, based on emerging data indicating Zika virus RNA can be detected for prolonged periods in some pregnant women. To increase the proportion of pregnant women with Zika virus infection who receive a definitive diagnosis, this guidance includes recommendations to expand real-time reverse transcription–polymerase chain reaction testing.

  3. CDC has updated interim guidance for the prevention of sexual transmission of Zika virus. The recommendations apply to all men and women who have traveled to or reside in areas with active Zika virus transmission and their sex partners. The recommendations in this report replace those previously issued and are now updated to reduce the risk for sexual transmission of Zika virus from both men and women to their sex partners. This guidance will be updated as more information becomes available.
