An update from the W.H.O. on the Zika Virus – very new evidence suggests the Zika Virus can persist in bodily fluids longer than previously thought. Therefore please read the amended guidelines below carefully:
– If you, or someone you know is PREGNANT, these are the areas currently affected by the Zika Virus. You should NOT travel to these areas at all.
– Also, and just as important, if your HUSBAND travels to these areas, he can obtain the virus through an insect bite and transfer it to you through intimate contact. So you must use protection (latex) for 3 MONTHS after he has been in these areas.
Please see your Family Medicine Doctor for any further advice and support.
