Zika Virus Advisory:

MA Department of Public Health - "Zika virus is a mosquito-borne flavivirus (in the same family as yellow fever, dengue and West Nile viruses) previously found largely in Africa and Southeast Asia. Local transmission of Zika virus has not been documented in the continental United States. However, Zika virus infections have been reported in travelers returning to the United States. With the recent outbreaks in the Americas, the number of Zika virus disease cases among travelers visiting or returning to the United States likely will increase."
