Zika is a mosquito-borne disease that is currently spreading throughout many countries and territories, including a small area in the continental United States. CDC recommends that healthcare systems (including urgent care, hospitals, physician offices, etc.) prepare for patients seeking a diagnosis and /or symptom management.
CDC continues to evaluate cases of Zika in the United States and US territories and updates guidance as new information becomes available. For more information, visit CDC’s Zika website (www.cdc.gov/zika/index.html).
