Society creates online resource for Zika virus

As increasing attention is being focused on outbreaks of Zika virus, a number of resources have been developed for physicians and other health care professionals.

After confirming the first case of Zika virus infection in a non-traveler in the continental United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) last Friday issued new interim guidance on preventing sexual transmission of Zika virus. In addition, the CDC updated its interim guidance for health care professionals in the United States caring for pregnant women and women of reproductive age with possible Zika virus exposure.

These are just two of the myriad resources and updates available from the CDC, as well as the World Health Organization, the Wisconsin Division of Health Services and others. To learn more, visit the Society’s Zika virus webpage, a clearinghouse for timely, credible information for members and their health care teams.
