Zika Virus Travel Alert
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Monday issued a travel alert urging pregnant women not to visit in the region where mosquitoes have spread the Zika virus. This includes certain areas of Miami, FL and many areas of Latin American, Caribbean countries and Puerto Rico.
Researchers believe the Zika virus is behind a dramatic spike in the number of newborns with microcephaly, babies born with abnormally small heads and brains who often die.
Below are links to the CA Department of Public Health information on the Zika virus and the CDC travel alerts:
