The latest Zika information and resources from DPH and our partners

Check the CDC website for the most current information about where Zika virus outbreaks are occurring and advise pregnant women or couples planning on becoming pregnant to avoid travel to these areas. Pregnant women that do report a recent history of travel to an area with an outbreak should be tested.

Specimens from these women should be sent to the Massachusetts State Public Health Laboratory. However, not all patients will meet the criteria for Zika virus testing. Please consult the Zika Clinical Advisory below for the most current testing guidelines, and contact the MDPH Division of Epidemiology and Immunization at (617) 983-6800 with questions.
