Other Areas with Zika Risk
Because Zika infection in a pregnant woman can cause severe birth defects, pregnant women should not travel to these areas. All travelers should strictly follow
steps to prevent mosquito bites and
prevent sexual transmission during and after the trip. Zika has likely been present in these areas for years with ongoing transmission. Check this page for the most up-to-date information before you make travel plans.
