  • Canada: Zika - PHAC issues travel notice - pregnant women should consider postponing travel to all areas of Florida - August 9, 2016

    Travel Health Notice

    The Public Health Agency of Canada recommends that pregnant women and those planning a pregnancy avoid travel to countries or areas in the United States with reported mosquito-borne Zika virus.
    The World Health Organization Zika situation report lists countries where there is reported mosquito-borne Zika virus transmission (countries listed under category 1 and 2 of Table 1).
    The state of Florida in the United States has reported cases of Zika virus infection transmitted locally by mosquitoes in areas of Florida.
    • Pregnant women and those planning a pregnancy should avoid travel to the affected areas of Florida (see CDC map).
    • There is potential transmission of Zika virus in and around areas with reported locally transmitted cases, even if cases are not yet reported.
    • Pregnant women and those planning a pregnancy should consider postponing travel to other areas in Florida.
