Latest Travel Alerts

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now has “Alert Level 2” advisories in place for many popular sun destinations, recommending that travelers “practice enhanced precautions” when traveling to any of the countries reporting locally-transmitted cases of Zika.

 

More critically, “out of an abundance of caution,” the CDC specifically recommends that “pregnant women in any trimester should consider postponing travel to the areas where Zika virus transmission is ongoing.” While the Zika virus has virtually no impact on the health of those bitten by infected mosquitos, a link has been made between severe deformities among thousands of babies born and their mothers who had mosquito bites.

 

The countries and U.S. territories where locally-transmitted cases of Zika have been reported by the CDC now includes:

 

  • Barbados
  • Bolivia
  • Brazil
  • Cape Verde
  • Colombia
  • Dominican Republic
  • Ecuador
  • El Salvador
  • French Guiana
  • Guadeloupe
  • Guatemala
  • Guyana
  • Haiti
  • Honduras
  • Martinique
  • Mexico
  • Panama
  • Paraguay
  • Puerto Rico (A U.S. Commonwealth)
  • Saint Martin
  • Samoa
  • Suriname
  • U.S. Virgin Islands
  • Venezuela

 

Beyond this rapidly growing list, the World Health Organization (WHO) is cautioning that with the exception of Canada and Chile, every country in the Western Hemisphere – in North and South America – will eventually see locally-transmitted cases of Zika.
