New CDC advisory regarding the Zika Virus outbreak.

Zika virus is a mosquito borne virus that has been linked to a marked increase in cases of microcephaly in Brazil. Maternal fetal transmission of this virus has been documented. Because there is neither a vaccine nor prophylactic medication, the CDC has recommended that all pregnant women consider postponing travel to areas where Zika virus transmission is ongoing.

Please see the official health advisory released by the CDC for more information. For informationon travel notice released by the CDC, please visit CDC Travel Notice: Zika Virus.
