We are receiving a lot of calls and questions regarding Zika and rightfully so. This is certainly an emerging problem with many more questions than answers. I find it difficult to give exact recommendations regarding Zika because there is still so much we do not know. We certainly have been traveling to areas for decades that have been quite affected by malaria, yellow fever, and dengue which are essentially the same areas affected by Zika. These diseases are quite harmful and make many more people sick then Zika has. However, I personally would be cautious about traveling to affected areas if my family was pregnant or thinking about pregnancy. There are recent reports of transmission here in the US and the current expectation is that local transmission may rise.
