Federal agency offers travel guidelines on Zika virus

POUGHKEEPSIE >> The Dutchess County Department of Behavioral & Community Health reminds residents that Zika virus is still a significant health risk in many popular travel destinations worldwide. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control now recommends that pregnant women not travel to any area where there is a risk of Zika virus infection, including areas where the virus has been newly recognized, areas where the virus was present prior to the start of the 2015 epidemic, and areas where the virus is likely to be circulating but has not been documented.

Residents can search for location-specific Zika information and travel recommendations using the CDC’s interactive World Map of Areas with Zika Risk at: https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/page/world-map-areas-with-zika

Travelers to areas where Zika virus is circulating should use an Environmental Protection Agency-registered insect repellent.
