What is Zika?

Zika is a virus spread to people through mosquito bites and sexual contact with an infected person. The most common symptoms of Zika are: fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis (red eyes).

Prevent mosquito transmission by getting rid of standing water on your property, mowing the grass, and using window screens. If you are planning on spending time outdoors, wear long pants and sleeves when possible and use insect repellent. Please see below fact sheets and websites for more information and travel guidance.
