The Global Engagement Office recommends that travelers follow the health advisory and travel advisory released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about the Zika virus and its potential impact on pregnant women and their fetuses. Travel to regions with ongoing Zika virus outbreaks is not recommended for women who are pregnant or women who are considering pregnancy. Specific areas where Zika virus transmission is ongoing are difficult to determine and likely to change over time, so it is critical that travelers consult the CDC updates frequently before and during travel. Currently, there is not vaccine to prevent or medicine to treat Zika, and travelers are highly encouraged to discuss the risks and means for reducing the risk of mosquito bites with their health provider in preparation for international travel.
