Overview

Throughout this holiday season, many clinicians will see patients who plan to travel or have recently traveled to areas with active Zika transmission. During this COCA Call, clinicians will learn about current CDC travel recommendations, how to determine which patients should receive Zika testing after traveling to an area with Zika, and the recommendations for patients before and after travel to help them protect themselves and others from Zika.

Objectives

  • Describe the latest guidance for travelers visiting areas with active Zika transmission, and differentiate between countries with epidemic and endemic Zika.
  • Advise patients who are considering or planning to travel on the possible Zika risk associated with their travel, and the protective measures they can take before, during, and after their trip.
  • Apply CDC Zika Laboratory testing algorithms when determining which patients with relevant travel history, possible Zika virus exposure, or Zika symptoms should receive testing.
  • State recommendations for travelers returning from areas with active Zika transmission to prevent further transmission of Zika.
